Default Dubious HOF Statistical Records

We discuss statistics ad nauseum as qualifying data for Hall of Fame selection, but what about Hall of Famers, who hold records that a casual observer would consider dubious and hardly worthy a Hall of Fame career.

The first nominee to the dubious HOF would be Cy Young, who holds the career record for pitching losses with 315.

Interestingly 9 of the top 10 losers in major league history are members of the Hall of Fame.

As a bonus trivia question, and without looking, who is the biggest loser not in the Hall of Fame?

Let’s see some other Hall of Famers who set records they probably are not proud of. These dubious records of achievements need not be career records. Seasonal or single game records are fine. Even police records will do.

Everyone has records they are not proud of, even Hall of Famers.

Reggie and Thome are the career leaders for strikeouts. Judge is on a blistering pace, but the top of the leaderboard is safe for a few more years.

No idea who the pitcher is. Jamie Moyer?

My guess was Tommy John. Then I looked because I knew I was wrong.

NEVER would have guessed that. His career ERA was rather good for a .500 pitcher.

Ernie Banks played in 2528 games, none of them in the postseason.

Correct trivia answer, until proven wrong.

Now on with the dubious statistical achievements of our heroes.

I would love to have Reggie sign a ball that says All Time Strikeout King.

Only a great player gets a chance to make over 8500 outs in a major league career. 5 HoFs and Pete Rose.

Code:
1.	Pete Rose (24).            10328   B
2.	Hank Aaron+ (23).           9136   R
3.	Carl Yastrzemski+ (23).     9126   L
4.	Cal Ripken+ (21).           8893   R
5.	Eddie Murray+ (21).         8569   B
6.	Rickey Henderson+ (25).     8510   R
https://www.baseball-reference.com/l...e_career.shtml

Would Rose sign a ball “All-time Out King”? He’a signed almost everything else.

The difference is that Judge still gets on base. Reggie didn't know what a strike was.

In NYC the sacred cows of the judicial system are Judge Judy and Aaron Judge.

Let’s not judge Aaron harshly until he both breaks Reggie’s record and gets inducted into the HOF.

(sound of gavel) Case closed.

And just to get this thread back on track,

Cap Anson committed 658 errors while playing first base. He has a substantial lead on the rest of the field.

Anyone want to take a futures bet on Reggie's vs Aaron Judges Career HR's I'll take Reggie at 2 to 1.

Not really sure what that has to do with Judge being able to take a walk and providing a value Reggie couldn't. Judge's 7.2 WAR during his rookie year was a mark Reggie only eclipsed once, and it was during the one season Reggie managed to walk 100 times.

Last response as we're hijacking this thread. I think there's a good chance that 7.2 will be Judge's career high when all is said and done. Oh and Reggie did walk 1375 times in his career, with an OBP 94 points higher than his Avg.

The top five pitchers who have walked the most batters all time are all HOFers:

Nolan Ryan; Steve Carlton; Phil Niekro; Early Wynn; and Bob Feller.

Niekro has got to be top 5 for losses too. Probably one of very few HOF'ers to lose 20 in a season.

Cy Young lost 20 or more in 3 seasons.

Pud Galvin averaged 20 losses a year, but in the 19th Century. How many of Cy's were 20th century? Also if Cy were the only other one that would qualify as "very few" in my book

OK so there's a decent handful, Robin Roberts was the only other 2nd half of the century guy I saw, but Eppa Rixey, Ted Lyons (neither of whom SHOULD be in) Some guy named Walter Johnson all lost 20 in the 20th century.

The greatest players have the most of everything, because they played the most games. Most wins, losses etc. I think Pete Rose made the most outs (9797) also most hits. Managers in HOF have the most losses etc.

Good point; Connie Mack was a sub-500 manager over his entire career and lost more than 3900 games.

Nah. Lots of them did it. However...

Phil is the only guy to lead the league in wins AND losses in the same year!

Default Perhaps not quite in the spirit of this Thread, but

a dubious record, for sure. Somewhat depending upon the reporting source, Sam Thompson (Detroit 1885-1888, Philadelphia 1889-1898, Detroit 1906, HOF 1974) in 1895 became either the first of four men to record three outfielder-to-catcher assists in a game, or the only man ever to record four in a game.

A curious record at best, dependent of course upon four base runners on third attempting to score after a Thompson catch. Thompson was an outstanding right fielder, and among all outfielders who played more than 1,000 games , his assist-per-game ratio (one every 4.9 games) is the highest in history.

He also compiled the highest fielding average of any outfielder who played 1,000 games and whose career concluded before the 20th century.

On his very last pitch as a Major Leaguer, Nolan Ryan set the career record for most Grand Slams surrendered by one pitcher - as Dann Howitt (who?) of the Mariners took him deep in the first inning on September 22, 1993.


Since then, this dubious record has been tied by one now-retired reliever and then broken by a now-retired starter. Anyone want to guess who these non-HOF pitchers are?



Bert Blyleven, who had never surrendered more than 24 homers in any single season, set the Gopher-Ball record in 1986 with 50 and then gave up another 46 in 1987.

In 1988, he only gave up 21, but led the lead with 16 HBPs...hmmmm.

Certainly in the spirit of this thread and I’m guessing he may be your great-grandfather. My grandmother was a Thompson before she was a Burkett incidentally.

On his very last pitch as a Major Leaguer, Nolan Ryan set the career record for most Grand Slams surrendered by one pitcher


=
The other side of the coin, Jim Palmer never gave up a grand slam or back-to-back HRs in his entire career.

Vic Willis lost 29 games in one season, the most since 1900.

Plus, if he was so great, why didn't he ever win one of those Cy Young awards?

Only partially true.

While it's true that he didn't give up a grand slam, he gave up consecutive homers on five different occasions :

June 23, 1970 (N) at Fenway Park, Red Sox
5th inning
Conigliaro & Petrocelli

July 10, 1973 (N) at Memorial Stadium, Angels
4th inning
Oliver & Stanton (1st of 3 in game, 2 off Palmer)

June 9, 1977 (N) at Fenway Park, Red Sox
3rd inning
Lynn & Rice

April 19, 1980 (N) at Memorial Stadium, White Sox
7th inning
Morrison & Baines

September 1, 1983 (D) at Exhibition Stadium, Blue Jays
4th inning
Whitt & Barfield

Well, he never gave up consecutive grand slams anyway.

Yes, it's true that he never surrendered a grand-slam.

IMO, it was a difference in pitching philosophy: Ryan seemed to see such occasions as personal challenges, while Palmer knew that an occasional bases-loaded-walk did less damage. Even as a big Nolan Ryan fan, I have to admit this.

It would be interesting to see how many Bases loaded walks each had.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

I bet Ryan had a lot more bases loaded situations than Palmer and perhaps the percentage of those situations ending in a walk may actually be fairly close.

I bet Ryan issued more walks than Palmer in any of the following

Bases empty
Man of first
Man on second
Man on third
Men on first and second
Men on first and third
Men on second and third
And bases full

So if one pitcher puts 20 men on base and 4 score and the other pitcher puts 5 on and 1 scores, these pitchers are equal because the percentage is the same?
