How the Dodgers Went from Mismanaged Failure to One of the Most Valuable Teams in Sports

vanityfair.com — The untold story of how Magic Johnson and a group of billionaires turned the beleaguered team around. Magic Johnson was waiting. It was a November morning in 2011 and the former basketball superstar and AIDS activist was sitting in his Beverly Hills office, on Wilshire and North Doheny, wondering what was taking so long.

THE BEST TEAM MONEY CAN BUY

kirkusreviews.com — A searching portrait of the Los Angeles Dodgers' 2013 season, from ESPN Magazine writer Knight. When the Guggenheim Partners purchased the Dodgers in mid-2012, they paid $2.15 billion for a fixer-upper ball club with a ramshackle stadium to match, its concrete bones as osteoporotic as those of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field.

5 things MLB can learn from Nippon Professional Baseball.

sportsonearth.com — TOKYO -- If you're a baseball fan with an Internet connection, you've undoubtedly read scary stories about how the sport's popularity in the U.S. is circling the drain.
