Great thread, but I really don't think Bond's should even be listed. Just my opinion....

How about Chesbro's 41 wins in a season? I don't think anyone will ever sniff that again either....

Especially in today's normal 5 man rotation....Even with a 4 man rotation, no chance whatsoever...

Another to add would be breaking Johnny Vander Meer's record of throwing two consecutive no-hitters.

Most career pitching losses, I think Cy Young holds that record as well, no?

Cy Young's win record
Rickey Henderson's stolen base record
Sam Crawford's triple record
Jack Chesbro's single season (modern) record
These all seem to defy any future advances in longevity.

The actual record is 60 wins in one season, by Old Hoss Radbourne. (Some sources still say 59). Chesbro's 41 is the highest after the 19th century.

Cy Young's win record. It's not easy to envision a 30 game winner in one season anymore (it's been 45 years), where 35 starts seems to be the max. Now picture having to win 30 games a season for 17 seasons--and still be one short of Cy. Ain't happening.
