That depends on what deal they can negotiate at that time.

It is their only asset that allows them to be a sports-entertainment attraction.

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.
There isn't the real estate available for a park that there was ~25 years ago.
