A Year of Records

Postby Mookie4ever » Fri Oct 01, 2004 9:59 am

We all know about Ichiro's race for the hits record but what about these:



The underappreciated Bobby Cox won his 2,000 game yesterday.

This guy is a class act.

Adam Dunn set the single season strike out record last night - 190 whiffs.

http://www.cincypost.com/2004/10/01/red ... -2004.html

"It's great," Dunn said cheerfully. "I'm the only person that actually has claim to that record. Now I've just got to try to add on to it before the year's over."


I guess that Billy Beane isn't killing himself to trade for Dunn.

And the Diamondback are on a pace to finish with one of the top ten worst records in the modern era.

Francisco Cordero set the record for saves by a Ranger reliever. ;-D

Pretty sure I heard the announcers say that Mike Young set the Ranger record for hits in a season too, but I need to double check that one. :-?

Cardinals have 4 15-game winners for the first time in franchise history. They also have two 40-home-run hitters for the first time in franchise history.

They could tie their best record ever, but with the way they are going now, it's unlikely that they will do that.

Marcus Bellhorn smashed the previous Red Sox single season strikeout record....

Barry frikkin Bonds will (once again) totally kill the all-time obp and ops records when the season over. how's that for a record ??? :-B
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

the professor continued his streak of 15 wins in a season.
Actually doesn't he own the record outright now?
Thats absolutely remarkable when you stop and think about it ...
Its also a record that may never be broken ....

Were those Cardinals? I'm only 26, and I know little of the franchise before 1980.

KMOX reported the stat I mentioned above. It'd be interesting to let them know if they are wrong.

I think he does have the record now at 17 years straight. IMO that's one of the most underrated records, it's amazing that someone can be that good for that long, it's almost like the pitching equivalent Bonds in a way.

Agreed. It is pretty amazing considering how many pitchers go down with injuries now. Not to mention guys like RJ who only has 15 wins with a 2.65 era and has tossed 237 innings. Very easily could have fallen short and only had 14 wins.

Congrats to the professor! ;-D
