A pair of St. Louis Cardinals teammates made MLB historical past collectively final week.
Yadier Molina was behind the plate for an Adam Wainwright begin for the 325th time, setting the document for many begins by a pitcher-catcher duo in MLB historical past. They broke the document for many battery begins, which was beforehand held by Mickey Lolich and Invoice Freehan, who performed collectively on the Detroit Tigers from 1963-75.
With Wainwright and Molina setting this new mark, FOX Sports activities’ Ben Verlander and Alex Curry ranked their top-five most unbreakable MLB data, which included the current mark set by the Cardinals duo.
Ben Verlander’s 5 unbreakable MLB data
5. Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright most begins as a battery (325)
Ben’s ideas: “The next closest active duo is over 200 away from that. Unbelievable. Kyle Hendricks and Willson Contreras are the next closest, and they’re nowhere close. I don’t think we ever see this one again.”
4. Rickey Henderson most profession steals (1,406)
Ben’s ideas: “Will we ever see this again? No, for a couple of reasons. One, the stolen base isn’t as big of a factor in Major League Baseball anymore. It might be in the future because the bases will be slightly bigger, so they’ll be closer, and maybe we’ll see more stolen base attempts. But two, nobody’s going to do it like Rickey Henderson did … That record feels unbreakable to me.”
3. Nolan Ryan most profession strikeouts (5,714)
Ben’s ideas: “Truly remarkable. One, he’s known for being a strikeout guy. Obviously, he’s got the most strikeouts of all time. He pitched for so long. He had so many strikeouts in so many years well into his 40s. So, the longevity mixed in with his talent to strike out anybody on any given night, you won’t see either ever again. The combination of both is what got him 5,714 strikeouts.”
2. Cal Ripken Jr. most consecutive video games performed (2,632)
Ben’s ideas: “There are 162 games played in a year. So, do that quick math … it’s going to take you precisely 15 years and three weeks to get this done. OK, I don’t know for certain, but Whit Merrifield had the active record going and he was something like 10 years away from breaking the record.”
1. Cy Younger most profession wins (511)
Ben’s ideas: “You could do a whole list of Cy Young things: wins, losses, complete games, whatever you want to do. I went with wins because it’s positive and being a BPG — big positive guy — I’m all positive here. They should name an award after him.”
The 5 most unbreakable MLB data
Ben Verlander and Alex Curry give us their high 5 unbreakable data in MLB historical past on “Flippin’ Bats.”
Alex Curry’s 5 unbreakable MLB data
5. Cy Younger most profession full video games (749)
Alex’s ideas: “I don’t see [anyone] matching that record anytime soon. The whole pitching structure has changed. You have so many relief pitchers. You have closers [pitching more]. Everything changed in that sense. Plus, you would have to average 30 complete games over 25 seasons. Just a little bit difficult right there.”
4. Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright most begins as a battery (325)
Alex’s ideas: “It’s so rare to have one player in one organization for that long, let alone a teammate and a battery mate be in the organization for that long. Also, for either one of them to not have a big injury. This is impressive. I don’t see it happening again for a very long time.”
3. Joe DiMaggio longest hitting streak (56 video games)
Alex’s ideas: “The last time there was a 45-game hitting streak was in 1996-97. Injuries, pitchers choosing to walk you, there are so many things that can happen.”
2. Shohei Ohtani 10-plus wins and 30-plus dwelling runs in a season
Alex’s ideas: “I don’t even see that record happening, unless he’s maybe inspiring that next generation of kids that believe they can be the next Shohei Ohtani and do both [pitching and hitting] and get to where he’s going. Right now, he is the record book, and he keeps creating his own records.”
1. Barry Bonds most dwelling runs in MLB historical past (756)
Alex’s ideas: “This one might be a bit controversial. We know what was going on during that time. Sometimes we don’t talk about it. Sometimes we do talk about it. We’re seeing greatness right now. Albert Pujols, one of the greatest hitters of our generation, is just chasing 700 at the end of his career.”
