Actually, since the question is kind of lame and I won't be around for a few days to provide any more info, I'll offer up my answer now.

Bill Campbell had 17 wins and 20 saves for the 1976 Twins; he then took his act to Boston where he had 13 wins and 31 saves in 1977. All of those numbers were tops on his team(s).

if you want to go further back - Al Benton did in 40 games in 1949.

Bob Shaw did it with 3 shutouts!

Before that it might have been quite common.
For example, Lefty Grove led his team in 1926, 1927, 1928, 1930, 1932, and 1933.

That's more than I would have expected before I did the research (and there may be more still ... I just wanted to get a sense of how common it is.)

But here's the trivia question for you all -- can you name a pitcher who led his team in both wins and saves in the same season ON TWO DIFFERENT OCCASIONS? I have only identified one, but I'll attempt to verify other answers (please provide the years that he did it).

worst being Anthony Young @ 2-14 for a robust .125!
