The Dodgers aren’t the first sports team to go bankrupt, and won’t be the last.  But do the others who came before provide us with any insight into what’s gonna happen with Big Blue?

To answer that question, Maury Brown has a nice overview of some various sports bankruptcies in recent years, including the Rangers, the Cubs and the Phoenix Coyotes, all of which have some similarities to the Dodgers, thing, all of which have some differences.

Good background for those of us who are going to follow this thing obsessively.
