Other than that, I would move the team to Rosemont as long as Rosemont is still giving the land for free for the stadium. Spending upwards of $300 million on rehabbing a dump like Wrigley Field is just crazy. I read an article about the Boston Red Sox a few months ago where one of the team executives said if they had to do it all over again, they would of built a new stadium instead of rehabbing Fenway Park like they did.
No one can be that dumb to put a stadium by one of the busiest airports in the world. Have you ever sat outside in Rosemont for 15 minutes? The noise alone would send people out of that stadium. What would be unbelievably awesomely funny would be if the cubs moved to Rosemont and then Chicago went and found a way to "claim" the land around they were on as Chicago like they did with O'Hare.
Edit: I just looked at that scoreboard in left, can you imagine how many bugs will be in the left field bleachers?
