As to the SOX, I certainly hope when the time is right to start considering a new ballpark, they seriously consider moving into the south or west Loop area. Chicago would beneft from a downtown ballpark nestled into the city skyline. The problem with the Cell is that it's not a downtown ballpark and it's not a suburban ballpark and has an identity conflict as a result.
Lets see how the city looks 50 years from now when a new stadium will be needed.
