Thelma Carpuz has one word to describe her thoughts on the Diamondbacks moving.

"No," said Carpuz.

Many other fans feel the same way. 

"That would be a bummer if they left, because I would really miss them," said Mary Leivmann

"We love our D-Backs. We want the to do well. We want them to have what they need," said Ed Fontaine.

However, Maricopa County and the team disagree over what, exactly, is needed.

The Diamondbacks are threatening to leave or sue if they don't get $187 million worth of upgrades and repair to Chase Field that D-Backs officials say they are owed by the county.

Team executives say that money would be used to make lighting repairs, install new scoreboards and upgrade luxury suites.

"No. There is nothing wrong with Chase Field," Carpuz said.

"It's a great place to watch a game," said Fontaine.

D-Backs officials say they are asking for the upgrades with an eye on the future.
