It's either pay $250-million to make the place better (outfield park, real grass, etc.) and improve an atmosphere that will already be pretty amazing given the on-field improvements to the club, or spend >$800-million finding another prime location and building a stadium that would have to be one of the better stadiums in the league to justify making the move in the first place.
Oh, I agree and understand the reality of it - I was just saying what i'd personally prefer (in some alternate dimension)
