Did you know that hall of fame pitcher Cy Young , who is number one on the top one-thousand games lost research above, is also the all time wins leader ?

Nolan Ryan , who is third in games lost over the course of a Major League career, has also walked more ballplayers than any other pitcher in Major League history.

During the 1883 season John Coleman set the Major League single season record with forty-eight games lost — more than some early teams lost during a full year!
