Unbreakable Records

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Mon Jun 30, 2008 11:28 am

Saw an article and was curious what everyone else felt the most unbreakable record in the MLB was.

-Chief Wilson’s 36 triples in a single season.
-Ray Chapman’s 67 sacrifice bunts in a single season.
-Will White's 75 complete games in one season.
-Ty Cobb’s career batting average of .367.
-Nolan Ryan’s seven career no-hitters.
-New York Yankees five straight World Series titles.
-Cy Young’s 511 victories and 749 complete games.
-Cal Ripken’s 2,632 conseuctive-games played streak.
-Johnny Vander Meer’s two consecutive no-hitters.

Again, this is which record will not be broken. Go ahead and vote for 2 and if someone convinces you otherwise, you can change your vote. ;-D

75 complete games seems the least likely to be broken, simply because of how much the game has changed. 75 starts of any kind won't happen, never mind complete games...

Cy Young. No one pitches long enough or enough period to touch his record.

Its more likely that someone will beat another one on there before Cy Youngs is broken.

Think of it this way... you need to win at least 25 wins a year for 20 years, and you will still be 11 games short.

Thought about that one, but Pete Rose came close. I'm thinking it's more beatable than the 9 I put to a vote.

most of these records will not be broken, but this one is absurd. i would be impressed if anyone got within 50 complete games of this mark.

I've always thought Johnny Vander Meer was the answer to this question, so I was glad to see it included. To break his record, you'd have to pitch three no-hitters in a row. ;-D

I voted for Cy Young wins and the complete games -- just not going to happen because of the difference in the way the game is played.

Modern day record that I don't think will be broken, but has nothing to do with the way the game is actually played:

Hersheiser's scoreless inning streak :-°
