I saw this article, "Jerks of the Year: Worst Batters, Pitchers, Teams in the 2012 MLB Season."
Only one Twins mention that I noticed, Ben Revere hitting an MLB worst zero home runs. I did take note of the worst attendance: Tampa Bay drew 1,559,681 (19,255 average per game). That would have led the AL in 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1970 and 1974 (and very often prior to '61).
I imagine both leagues measure the same way now but, back in the day, one league (I think the AL) counted the turnstiles which included give-aways like Knothole Day (among others) while the other counted tickets sold, including no-shows. The NL numbers were always higher than the AL but nobody was really sure which league actually drew more.

One bad year out of 4 would lessen what it will take to get him. Its a gamble but he's quasi-ace (at least #2 type) if he gets his control back.

I did not realize that. Rodney had an unusually good year but "comeback?" That seems odd.
Dunn wan TSN's CPY trophy, not the MLB award. Those awards went to Fernando Rodney and Buster Posey.
We discussed it in one of the awards threads that Posey and Rodney had the narrative going, but Rios is by far the biggest comeback guy this year in the AL, and Martin Prado in the NL, going on fWAR.
