Rodney tops Dunn, Rios for AL Comeback Player of the Year

Adam Dunn and Alex Rios' complete resurgence in 2012 following poor 2011 seasons were two of the biggest reasons the White Sox laughed in the face of 90-loss predictions to hold first place in the AL Central for most of the year.

However, neither season was good enough to earn American League Comeback Player of the Year honors, which went to Tampa Bay Rays closer Fernando Rodney.

Below is a quick look at the last two seasons for Dunn, Rios and Rodney. Check it out and leave us a comment with who you believe should have won the award and why.

Honda Road Ahead: Blackhawks look to get back on track to close regular season

Pat Boyle and Steve Konroyd break down the Blackhawks' upcoming schedule in the latest edition of the Blackhawks Road Ahead, presented by Chicagoland and NW Indiana Honda dealers.

There are less than two weeks left in the NHL regular season and teams are jockeying for playoff seeding.

The Blackhawks have the best record in the Western Conference with 103 points. The Blackhawks' next two opponents, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Columbus Blue Jackets, also have 103 points. Washington leads the league with 106 points.

Wednesday the Hawks will travel to Pittsburgh. Two days later they host the Blue Jackets.

After that, the Blackhawks take on the Boston Bruins on Sunday. Boston is in line for one of the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.

"There's no easy games from here on out." Konroyd said in the video. "Even teams on the outside, looking in are playing for contracts next year."
