511 wins

Cy Young

Baseball was a different game in Young's career, which spanned the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. Nevertheless, his all-time wins record, which has already stood for nearly 100 years, will easily last for at least another 100. Just to get to 500, a pitcher would have to average 25 wins a season for 20 years, and only two pitchers in the past 30 years have had even one season of 25 wins.
