hold the phone booth.
Am new grass all year.
Round headed way? No way.
Well, you know, welcome aboard, friends.
Thank you for joining.
For those of you that do not know, my name is Jesse Clark, right? And stream On behalf of the unwrapped sports Network, you can follow me on Twitter at J.
Crockett 24 and tonight we are going to discuss the top five unbreakable records and Major League Baseball.
And a lot of it is due to the fact that, you know, the game's played differently now, and there are just some records that I do not foresee ever being broken.
So today we're going to kind of break those down.
Let's move right into them.
Before we start, I will say one that did not make the top five but was in great consideration.
And that is Eric Gagne days, 84 consecutive wins.
So he gets my honorable mention if there is such a thing.
But I wanted to mention that just because the way that closers and relief pitchers are used in today's Major League baseball isn't the way of the past, you know, the dominant closer that last several years with squad is becoming more rare every single year, and they're starting to use kind of, ah saves by committee type approach.
So I could easily see that as well.
Being an unbreakable record for Major league baseball and that is a rare gone yays 84 consecutive wins.
But he just missed the cut there, so I listed him as an honorable mention.
Let's start with you know, I don't have a particular order that I want to go in here with these.
So I'm just going to start with the all time hits leader Pete Rose.
A red leg should be in the Hall of Fame, but that's a debate for another day.
He has 400 or 400 dosh, 4256 career hits.
And just to show you guys, some of why I think that is going to be impossible and not a feat able to be broken is he, you know, played in the league for over 20 years and that alone is rare in today's MLB and he would have had to have, you know, 213 hits her season in order to get to that feet and 200 hits in today's major league.
Baseball is a very, very good hit season.
You know, a lot of the approach has been focused more on, you know, driving and runs and hitting for power.
So that skill of being, you know, just ah hit machine and spring and all over the ballpark is kind of missing from today's Major league baseball.
And that is why I do not believe that hits record set by Pete Rose will ever be broken.
Next we have Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak.
There is no way nobody will be able to do 56 games of like hardly anything anymore.
56 games of getting a hit is just crazy to even think about today.
If that happened, with all the ****ytics and everything else in today's game, they just start walking in every every at bat or, you know, giving him tons of pitches to hit.
You know he reached that feat.
I don't want to take anything away from him, but he reached that feet in a day where, you know, there were no ****ytics whatsoever, Hector.
I didn't even know broadcast games on television.
So the rarity of that happening.
I just cannot fathom that ever being accomplished again, especially with the way that we are moving in today's major league baseball, where you know there's a lot more strikeouts, a lot more emphasis on power, like we just mentioned and driving and runs.
So that streak of 56 games in a row, there is no way that that is going to be accomplished again.
I'm going to save the most crazy one for last, and I haven't even heard of this guy until today when I was looking this up.
So I assume most of you haven't either.
But I think you'll find it fascinating.
So I'm going to save that one for last.
Next, let's move on to the Iron Man himself.
He had 2632 consecutive games played, and here's why.
That will never happen.
I'm going to look at the stat right now just to prove my point.
Boyars played, displayed, all right.
Yeah, Let's not go there.
Of course it's gonna show me team standings.
Every single to play 162 games.
There were 12345 five players that played 100 62 games.
It's just never gonna happen again in the way that they're resting players and trying to keep guys healthy for long stretches.
And, you know, uh, putting guys on Phantom D L stretches.
T keep him fresh.
That's just the thing in the past that will never even be close to being broken again.
I don't believe, even if the player forced this hand and really wanted to play every single game, I don't believe the manager or the front office would even let them.
So I don't even think it's under the players control anymore.
I just don't think that that 2632 consecutive games is ever going to be matched again.
So Cal Ripken impressive feat, you know, just the ultimate Iron Man.
And that is why he got his nickname as such.
Next list here, next player is Cy Young.
Now listen to this and granted some of this stuff is he? Had he had, he had 511 wins in a season are in a career.
But in the 10 okay.
Sorry, so he had 511 wins for a career.
And for some reason I was feeling like that was the number I wanted to focus on, and that is a high number that may not ever get broken as well. But listen to this.
He had 749 complete games.
Pictures aren't even allowed to pitch complete games anymore.
You know, it is a rarity if a pitcher gets more than 10 complete games in a season and tow, have you know, 749 in a career that's like playing.
What's the math on that? Playing 20 years, 749 divided by 20 you have to pinch 37 37 complete games a year in a 20 year stretch.
Most pictures don't even get the 37 starts in a year anymore.
So 37 complete games is just absolutely astonishing, to say the least.
So my last one is very similar to that, but it is maybe even Maur surprising.
So this gentleman named and you'll see him with the nice mustache here in the Boston uniform.
His name is Charles Old Haas Rad, born and he I mean, this was back.
You kind of have to.
I don't want to be ageist or anything, but you kind of have to take this all with a grain of salt because these guys were, you know, playing their their lumber there, bats that they were using.
They probably, you know, broke off a limb out of the, you know, tree in their backyard, and that's what they hit with.
But this guy had 59 wins in a year, 73 starts in one year, 678 innings in one season.
The leader last year had around 300 total innings, and he over, you know, double that had 73 starts.
That's probably double what we're getting in today's MLB in 59 wins in a single season.
I can't even believe this.
This doesn't even seem real, like you wonder if people just made up stuff back then because, honestly, we don't have any record of it.
It's back in the 18 hundreds.
It's not like they have television to broadcast the games, so we're kind of just guessing on.
A few stats are actually real or not.
but I just found that fascinating.
The guy old Horse had 5 59 wins, 73 starts in 678 innings and one season.
So that was the most impressive staff that I read all afternoon in preparing for this, and I thought that that was worth, you know, probably towards the top spot.
So while Cy Young was impressive, this feat by the Boston you know, mustache king over here was probably the all time, mind boggling stat for Major League Baseball.
And there's no way that will even get close to being broken again.
So you see it here on the list.
You know Eric Gagne with his 84 saves.
Consecutive saves was an honorable mention, but you see the five names here.
Pete Rose's hits, Cal Ripken Jr CE consecutive games, Cy Youngs complete games in a season, Joe DiMaggio's hit streak and then old houses single season record breaking fashion.
Those are my five top five unbreakable major league baseball records.
