To me, there is no record more hallowed than Cy Youngs career victories record. To me, the most exciting plays in baseball are 1) the strikeout 2) the double play and 3) the triple or inside-the-parker.

I never thought home runs were all that exciting. I still think the triple is the most exciting thing in baseball.
The influx of home runs in the Majors during the late '90's drove me away from the game.
