■#10 — Babe Ruth’s Highest Career Slugging Percentage .690
■# 9 — Sam Crawford’s 309 career triples
■# 8 — Eric Gagne’s 84 consecutive saves
■#7 — Hack Wilson’s 191 RBIs in a season
■#6 — Orel Hershiser consecutive scoreless inning streak – 59
■#5 — Bob Gibson’s Season ERA – 1.12
■#4 — Joe Sewell – fewest strikeouts in 150+ games, 4 (done twice)
■#3 — Nolan Ryan’s Career 5,714 Strike Outs
■#2 — Cal Ripken’s 2, 632 Consecutive Game Streak
■#1 — Nolan Ryan’s Career 7 No Hit Games

Agree? Disagree?

Does Joe's hitting streak belong in the top-10 ahead of one of the other records?

I dont really count Gagme's record as being an actual record...

I could see Hershiser's record or the RBI record.

1.12 should be higher on the list. In todays game, That would be superhuman.

Other than those, I agree.

Cy Young's 511 wins? Some people insist that there may not be another 300 game winner.

This list is a sham without Cy Young's 511 and DiMaggio's 56 game streak on it.

I certainly agree with Cy Young's 511. Single season or streak records (other than Ripken's) I think could be broken with an incredibly hot season. The game has changed too much for some of the career records to be matched. 25 wins for 20+ years? Albert Pujols is the best batter I've ever seen and he never had a single season SLG at .690 or above.

69 years and counting for the hit streak. Only 1 guy has come within 10 games and that was over 30 years ago. It could get broken, but will it?

Cy Young's win record should be #1, no doubt.

And the 191 RBI record was beaten... in MLB09: the Show. And that IS the most realistic video game... Wink

I certainly agree that Cy Young's 511 should be #1, with Dimaggio's 56 game hitting streak right up there. I would not include Gagne's save streak. Others that I might include are:

* Ty Cobb's .367 lifetime batting average. Hard to imagine anyone having a career average that high ever again with the way the game is geared towards power. Tops currently are Pujols with .333, Ichiro with .332, and Helton & Mauer with .327 (min of 3000 PAs)

Active Leaders in BA

* Rickey Henderson's 130 stolen bases in one season. This part of the game just isn't as important as it once was. Nobody has even sniffed 100 since 1987.

Stolen Base Leaders by Season

Cy Young wins and Joe D's hit streak are no brainers to be included high on the list.

Another to consider... that I can't conceive ever being broken, given the current evolution of the game is in the area of complete games pitched:

Career complete games: Cy Young 749 (or you could use Walter Johnson's 531 if you wanted to limit this to MLB after 1900)

Single season complete games: Jack Chesbro w/ 48 in 1904
(or if you go back to 1879, there's Will White with 75)

■#10 — Babe Ruth’s Highest Career Slugging Percentage .690 - Safe record
■# 9 — Sam Crawford’s 309 career triples - Probably safe but could happen
■# 8 — Eric Gagne’s 84 consecutive saves - Will take a long time but somebody with do it
■#7 — Hack Wilson’s 191 RBIs in a season - Very difficult but not impossible
■#6 — Orel Hershiser consecutive scoreless inning streak – 59 - Will fall eventually
■#5 — Bob Gibson’s Season ERA – 1.12 - Possible
■#4 — Joe Sewell – fewest strikeouts in 150+ games, 4 (done twice) - Not a chance
■#3 — Nolan Ryan’s Career 5,714 Strike Outs - Doubtful that anyone will ever pitch enough innings
■#2 — Cal Ripken’s 2, 632 Consecutive Game Streak - Very unlikely
■#1 — Nolan Ryan’s Career 7 No Hit Games - Very unlikely

Someone will get 56

I doubt anyone will ever get back to back no hitters

None of the old pitching records will be broken, the game is too different these days. You just can't compare it.

What about Roger Maris' 61 home runs in a season? When will that fall?
