Default U.S. Cellular name change in future?

With U.S. Cellular being bought out by Sprint, which includes the Chicago area, will we see a name change at the ballpark?

Just wondering.

No. The name deal runs until 2023 anyway.

I would think we'd see a name change eventually. Would it make sense to have a ballpark named after a company that is essentially defunct in Chicagoland?

We might see more Scott Podsednik-type players if they change the name.

Since US Cellular waved the white flag in the Chicago market, maybe JR thinks it is still the perfect name.

Still, even with the naming rights until 2023, I would not be surprised at all if a new name were to be granted to The Cell.
