Don't just think of home runs

What are baseball's top best "records"?
If numbers like 714 are going to cease to mean anything, then what do any home run records mean? And if the home run records are no longer the coolest, most celebrated records in baseball, what replaces them?

i personally love the hitting streak and (growing up a dodger fan) hershiser's scoreless inning streak.

also, the current record of 50% of steroid users being pitchers is a pretty nice one. i blame barry bonds's awesomeness on juiced pitchers.... oh... wait
