The most unbreakable records in MLB history: 315 Losses by a pitcher

He’s considered by some to be the greatest pitcher of all time. At the very least, Cy Young is firmly in the conversation. It’s hard to deny him when you consider that his name is etched on the one award all pitchers strives to win at the end of every season.

Place that to the side for the moment though, as we take a long, strong look at the deficiencies of Young’s game, most notably, his propensity to lose them.

In total, Young registered 315 losses throughout his Hall of Fame career. Outside of three seasons, Young registered double-digit losses in every season of his career. He rarely took time off for nagging injuries but maybe he should’ve. Only Young and Pud Galvin have cracked the 300 loss mark.

As badly as Young would love for someone to take the record off his hands, no active pitcher is currently ranked in the top 250 in losses all time. Get comfortable Young, your record is going to be there for a while.
