Default Records That Can Be Broken

Some records are safe. Who would argue that 511 wins by Mr. Young will be topped?

Other records, theoretically at least, are well within reach, but unlikely.

Letís consider records that are not secure. Post a record for consideration or merely comment on one that has been mentioned.

Iíll kick things off with men left on base in a 9 inning game by one team. The maximum possible is 27, but what is the record. From 1919 to 2018 this dubious and meaningless record is held by the Cubs, who left 17 men on base in a game in 2011.

Once we have a couple of dozen choices, we can all sit back and see whose record is broken first.

If there is any WAR record Mike Trout does not already own, he will break it very soon.

The Yankees might break the record of 264 home runs by a team set by the Mariners in 1997. And even if they don't, it seems like one that will be broke at some point.

The Dodgers left 8 on in the first 3 innings the other night and I started wondering what the 9 inning record was.

My safe nomination: Mark Reynolds struck out 223 times in 2009. Joey Gallo May break that record this season. Currently at 90 through 65 games. On pace for 224.

With the way guys are swinging and missing this season, I'd say most strikeout records are within reach - both on the good side (pitchers) and on the bad (hitters). I'd say the only one that is beyond reach is Ryan's career mark of 5714 Ks.

Single season K record by a batter.

Pitchers donít throw enough innings anymore to challenge the career strike out or single season strikeout records. Strikeouts/9 or strikeouts in a game are well within reach though.

Three records that WILL be broken:

Most ABs in a single season without a sacrifice.


Most ABs in a career without a sacrifice.


Most career starts - as a pitcher - without a single complete game.



and a related record that WILL NOT be broken:

Most career starts - as a pitcher - without a relief appearance - currently held by Tom Glavine with 682.

Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

Walter Johnson's career record of 110 shutouts. Whoops, I just realized that the OP is looking for records that CAN be broken. I suppose almost any record can be broken, but this WaJo record won't be.

Don’t anoint Gallo yet. Aaron Judge has 85 strikeouts through 59 games, which equates to 233 over a season. If he stays healthy he will blow Gallo away.
