    A player named Tyrone Horne hit for the home run cycle in 1998 in Double-A.

    Dave Stieb threw back-to-back one hitters in Sept. 1988. Both were broken up with two out in the ninth.

    Has that happened since?

    30 wins in a season, perhaps?

    No, Dave Stieb never did that again. Neither has anyone else, to my knowledge.

    30 wins will be tougher just because of the number of starts and the specialy of relief pitching

    In this day of age when your average baseball player has already had two or three surgeries before even reaching the majors, I doubt we'll ever see Cal Ripken's consecutive-games-played streak broken. I also think Orel Hershiser's scoreless-innings-pitched record is safe.

    I do believe DiMaggio's record will be broken in my lifetime.

    They will eventually pitch around the batter.

    No way will DiMaggio's record be broken either. Too much situational pitching.

    To hit 350 or more home runs in a career and have less than 350 career Ks.

    To never swing and miss in an entire season. Didn't Wade Boggs come amazingly close one year?

    That would be a great stat: cosecutive swings without a miss.

    How about not grounding into a double play all season?

    You could never have this conversation with the other sports. I just want to point that out.

    Off the same pitcher, too.
