10 records that will never in a million years be broken
1. Cy Young, 511 career wins (1890-1911)
Ok, I said I wasn’t going to bring up baseball, but Cy Young’s 511 wins is a record that everyone can agree will never, ever, not in a million years, be broken. Ever.
Ed Walsh is the only pitcher in the 1900’s to reach the 40 win season milestone, and that was in 1908. So more realistically speaking—using the term “realistic” very loosely– for someone to break Cy Young’s record, it would require them compiling 20 years of 25 win seasons. Oh, and then they’d still need to win 12 more, but it shouldn’t be hard at that point, right?
Even more untouchable than that might be Young’s 749 complete games, but the reason has to do even more with how different the game is today. In a 162 regular season, a five-pitcher rotation would mean that if one were to complete, roughly, 32 games per season, it would take 23 seasons to come into contact with Young’s record. After completing 13 more… which, meh, I think you get it.
