And nobody references the Brewers as one of the league's signature teams. The Cubs have somehow weaseled their way in with the Dodgers, Cardinals, Red Sox, etc. as a brand name staple in baseball lexicon thanks to the Wrigley field aura. If they move out to Rosemont, they will likely slowly just fade into the background with the rest of the league.
