    Of those made available, I went with Wilt. Given the state of the NBA these days, I just can't see a single player scoring 100 points in a game. Has anyone even come within 30 points? I'm not an NBA fan so I don't know.

    Kobe Bryant scored 81 last year

    Randy Johnson (42) and Roger Clemens (43) are still over 1,000 strikeouts behind Nolan Ryan.

    Pedro is 34 years old with 2,998 career Ks. Even if he averages 250 Ks / year (something he's only done in 4 of his 15 ML seasons) for the next decade, he'll still be short of the mark. Smoltz & Mussina have decent shots at cracking 3,000 Ks. That's just a little more than 1/2 of what Ryan has.

    Jason Schmidt leads the under 35 crowd with 1,728 Ks at age 33. Javier Vasquez leads the under 30 crowd with 1,602 Ks at age 29. They'd each have to keep up their current pace for another 20 years to get within shouting distance.

    1972-1974, Nolan Ryan threw 942 & 2/3 innings and piled up 1,079 Ks.

    Ryan's record is so far out of reach that it isn't even funny.

    Have you seen Sidney Crosby play? If he stays healthy he can do it. 97 points in 56 games this season at such a young age!

    I doubt anybody throws more than 2 consecutive no-hitters in a row (and will be shocked if anybody even matches it).

    Even more impossible is Cy Youngs record 316 losses. A pitcher would have to lose 20 games every season for 16 years to break that record!

    Maybe not the most unlikely to get broken, but very doubtful:

    I could see that getting broke. But how about this one: Georgia Tech over Cumberland 222-0.

    Nah... almost a 1000 points separate The great one from Messier... that's the telling part, plus he had all those assists feeding Messier, the NHL will increase scoring, chances are good it will never be the way it was in the 80's again. Goalies are better and the defense is faster.

    Another one just to throw into the mix: Hack Wilson's 191 RBIs. A heck of a lot of things would have to fall into place for that to happen.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Because there are posters on here that don't like Pete and they actually consider themselves Reds fans.

    AS for me, Pete Rose's 4,256 hits will stand the test of time.

    Actually Nolan Ryan came pretty close, racking up 292 losses. Phil Neikro made it to 274.

    You haven't see Dallas play this year, have you?

    They started the season 0-4 and have gone 49-5 since. They may lose one more game all season.
