"Survive" is not the question; the question is whether they would ever achieve the same kind of almost cult status that the current ballpark enjoys. They get huge crowds no matter how bad the team is because Wrigley is seen as some sort of baseball shrine, and just being there is an "experience." I don't see that being re-created artificially.
