Cy Youngs 511 wins is epic
An Ace pitcher will get at max 33 starts a regular season. If the pitcher were to go 33-0 for the season (and his team misses the playoffs every year) it will take him 15.5 years to reach that record, yes 15.5.

With Pitchers coming in at the age of 20, it seems reachable, but no way in hell will a pitcher win 33 games in a season. Even so, I have not seen a 20 year old, be an ace for a team and winning 15+ a season consistently.

Jamie Moyer who ust won his 250th game. will be 47 when his contract runs out with the Phillies and in 23 years of Baseball the most he has won was 21. Even if he won 21 games ever season he has been in the MLB he would only be at 483, not counting playoff wins.

Randy Johnson who just won his 300th game will be 46 when his contract runs out with the Giants. Most wins he had in a season was 24 wins. If he won 24 games in the 22 seasons he has played in the MLB he would actually be over at 528, but the closest Johnson has been to 24 wins in a season after that is 21. Randy Johnson on average wins 16-17 games a season, and it shows how hard it is to stay consistent, for many, many seasons.

Impossible.

Cal Ripken, Jr. 2632 straight games played.

If a players team never makes the playoffs, that is a little over 16 seasons straight of playing baseball. 162 games with maybe 1 or 2 days off every week is hard to even play one full season of 162 games. With family issues, and injury issues it's almost impossible to do. Some players don't even play for 16 years. Record is epic, but it's breakable if these players keep taking Roids.

As long as the MLB is around with no salary cap it is possible. Other records like Cy Young, and Cal Ripken Jr. is much harder since it's an individual achievement and you must stay healthy for 15+ years to break both records.

As you can see, Yankees have been around for 108 years, some teams haven't been around for even the quarter of that time. 108 years is a long time to win 26 pennants, plus with more years to come, it's easily possible to reach 26 over time.

I know the basic history of the Yankees
:D

What I've tried to say is...
Are you sure that the 26 wins by the Yankees are " the most championships by a team in any sport" ????!!!!

For example
Real Madrid Football club has got 31 championship titles.
Juventus football club has got 27...


If you mean championship as win, 26 isn't the world record.
That's it...
