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.

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.

The hapless Mets could possibly set a team record for least wins in a single year for the combined months of May thru September (they may already hold the MLB existing record for a 162 game season). After starting 17-8 in April they are 10-25 since and are declining quickly, they look futile. In '62 they had 37 wins from May thru the end of September. They currently have 102 games left and considering their 10 wins since May 1st they would have to go 26-76 to do more poorly than the total of 37 they had for that period in 1962. It's doable. They stink.

The Yanks on the other hand are 23-8 since and including May 1st.

What a contrast in franchises.

Sorry to say even with that great ballpark I couldn't get a customer to go to a Mets game if I wrapped the ticket in a $100 bill.

It seems like all the possible records for batters striking out will be broken in the coming years, and many by a wide margin. I remember Bobby Bonds record of 189 strikeouts in a season lasted for decades. Is he even in the top 50 anymore? I don't even know.

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.
