    Strongest Baseball records

    Which is least likely to be broken?

    Just considering more modern or actually possible records, as there are many (like 48 complete games in one season) set it the dead era will never be broken.

    No one is EVER breaking Cy Young's win record. EVER.

    That's one of the records that we can't fairly consider though, because of the era. Pitchers just started too many more games back then.

    Oop, didn't realize this was a poll.

    In that case Joltin' Joe's hit streak gets my vote.

    I personally think its gotta be Ryan's strikeouts. No one active is even close. The second and third are Clemens and Johnson, both ready to retire, and I think each is still over a 1,000 away. Nolan was just a marvel with the ball.

    Although Vander Meer's unbelievable record is probably impossible. No pitcher can throw three consecutive no hitters to break that.

    Got to go with Ripkens consecutive games. In this day and age it is simply unheard of for professionals to go day in day out and not pick up an injury which they have to rest up. I did like that when he stoped it was his choice and not an injury.

    As Keith Olbermann pointed out, to break Johnny Vander Meer's record, someone would have to throw three consecutive no-hitters.

    Not a choice in the poll, but I don't think anyone will hit .400- the last was Ted Williams w/ a .406 batting average.
    Won't happen again.

    I've actually been thinking thats quite possible someday. You have more and more guys pushing 360 and 370 each year for large portions if not all of the season. One day, we might see it.
