MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Seattle Mariners owner Jeff Smulyan met with the other American League owners at the winter meetings yesterday to discuss the future of his team, which seems almost certain to move out of Seattle.The Mariners were put up for sale last week for $100 million, but the likelihood of finding a local buyer seems remote. If none is found within 120 days, the club apparently will abandon its lease and leave for a more attractive metropolitan area."I truly believe that if the franchise isn't sold in 120 days, we have the right to leave Seattle," Smulyan said.

Olympic Stadium, home of the Montreal Expos, was declared safe to reopen by the Quebec government yesterday.The troubled stadium was closed Sept. 13, when a 55-ton block of concrete dropped from its side, forcing the Expos to play their final home games on the road.The stadium will be back in operation in time for an auto show Jan. 9.The board plans a massive advertising campaign across North America to reassure the public that the stadium is safe to visit.* MARINERS: A proposed deal between Seattle owner Jeff Smulyan and King County would allow the franchise to move if efforts to boost its revenues fall short, according to published reports.

Seattle Mariners owner Jeff Smulyan and his bankers have agreed that he will move the team out of Seattle after next season unless he finds substantial new financing.In an internal bank credit document reviewed by the Seattle Times, bankers at Security Pacific Bank Washington say Smulyan's strategy is to put the team up for sale in November and move in time for the 1993 season.Smulyan disputes that he has decided to move the team, but he concedes he accepted the bank's requirement that he sell or refinance the team next year.

SEATTLE -- If Jeff Smulyan didn't have more important things to do with his head, he could shake it.For months he has been saying the Seattle Mariners were in financial trouble, that as a business, baseball wasn't close to being viable in the Northwest despite increased attendance.The columnists and analysts in Seattle made him out to be an impatient villain.Now Security Pacific Bank has called in $39.5 million in loans to the team -- due in February -- implying that baseball is not viable in the Northwest and won't survive until the loan was initially due (1996)

A quarterly meeting of major-league owners ended quietly yesterday in Baltimore with no big news but a few intriguing items.During two days of meetings, the owners approved a slight revision in their network television contract and discussed deadlines for two National League expansion teams to pay their $95 million entry fees.The issue that seemingly had aroused the most interest before the meetings, though, barely was broached. The owners heard briefly from Seattle Mariners chairman Jeff Smulyan, but weren't asked to make any decisions about the financially strapped franchise.
