There are many amazing records in baseball history, which ones do you think could or could not be broken?

Could not be broken: 262 BB and 120 IBB. Joe D'swill be the hardest to break out of the rest, imo.

You would think that Lou Gehrig's record of 23 career grandslam homeruns would be an easy one to break, but the closest to him in active players is Robin Ventura(18) and Manny Ramirez(17).. Even Barry Bonds with the amount of homers he has hit over his career is only on 11..

Manny Ramirez started the season with 17 but since then has hit 3, giving him, at the moment, 20.

I thought Ramirez already had 20? He'll be the all-time leader in 2-3 seasons.

I believe that Christy Mathewson's record of 3 cJohnny Vander Meer World series complete game shutouts in one world series will never be broken. No modern day pitcher will ever come close to that. Furthermore, I believe that Johnny Johnny Vander Meer's record of 2 consecutive no-hitters will ever be broken either.

Yea judging by the pase at which he hits them within a few years he will probably surpass gehrig's record of 23.

Well i don't keep an updated chart so i was going on before the season started, my point was how long has the record stood for? 60+ years, thats a hell of a long time. 23 is not a huge amount and with the power hitters in the last 20 years or so you would have thought the record would have been broken. The top 6 in the homerun hitting charts are all from the last 7 years and Sosa is in there 3 times and had only hit 8 grandslams at the begining of this season.

Yea that is a really good record and it did stand for a long time. It's actually umbelieveable that no one in the past 60 years, except for the now modern players, have even really come close to it. You think, espeacially since you get better pitches to hit with 'em loaded, that one of the outstanding players during the last 60 years would have come close to it.

it will be 70 years soon

Yea it will be actually because Gehrig retired in 39, so it will be 70 years in 2009.

Gehrig also obviously didn't hit any grand slams in 39 so probably in 07 or 08

What about the Cleveland Spiders they lost a record 134 games in a season. The most recent team that got close was the Detroit Tigers in 2003 they lost 119 games in a season.

Saying that Kansas City are making a good run of it with 95 losses this season and could well make the leader board yet lol!

Do you think anyone could get beat in todays era more than 134 games as the Spiders was way back in 1899..

and no I don't believe that anybody could be as bad as the 1899 Cleveland Spiders. Did you know that they were so bad, that they were actually afraid to play in front of their hometown fans? So afraid, in fact, that they played the last half of the season on the road.

Not even the 1962 Mets were afraid to play in front of their hometown fans. Or maybee they were? Who Knows? All I know is that they didn't refuse to play at home for the last half of their baseball season.
