Would the White Sox really move? Would Jerry Reinsdorf sell?
Let me take this opportunity to stump for one of my (many) genius ideas for my fair city
1. Obviously the Bears are moving to the suburbs
2. Jerry Reinsdorf sells the White Sox, and the ambitious and well-capitalized new owners renovate the vacated Soldier Field into a modern baseball palace as part of a broader development project in that part of the city, bringing far more people into the museum campus area on more days in the good weather part of the year than the Bears ever did.
3. The Billionaire-owned Chicago Fire purchase the white elephant of Guaranteed Rate Field from the State of Illinois and play there temporarily as they build a new soccer-specific stadium across the street, echoing the feel and architecture of the actually quite English soccer-like Old Comiskey Park.
