Has anyone said "most perfect world series games in a day?"

In my honest opinion it is probably Young's 500wins or Ryan's 5700 SOs. I don't think any teams would let pitchers play often enough to get close to those records, even if they were consistent enough. The last person to get 400wins was Johnson in 1920. No one will get that unless the way teams manage pitching changes drastically.

Many of these records will never be broken because the game has changed. However, it's possible that the game will change again in the opposite direction. Then they could easily be broken.

Example: Ratings are down therefore the rules change to lower the mound or shrink the strikezone. Batting average increases so that runs increase and millennial start watching. So in 2065, Bryce Harper Jr retires with a lifetime .402 batting average.

Cy Young wins. With six inning starts being an accomplishment, middle relief pitchers, one out closers, more rest days between starts, and other ways the pitchers are handled, that will never be broken.

Intentional walk, pick off, intentional walk, pick off, intentional walk, pick off. Zero pitch inning.

Default Unbeatable record

How about a pitcher, Tony Cloninger hitting 2 grand slams in the same game. Tough to beat this one.

I chose Ripken. Baseball rules could change one day to put Young's record in play. Ripken' record is impervious to baseball rule makers.

Then you could actually have a single pitch inning then. Intentionally walk the first two batters and the next guy hits the first pitch into a triple play!

Default Technically...

Technically it's possible for no pitch innings. Intentional walks to 3 batters and pick them off before even throwing a true pitch

36 triples in a season by Owen "Chief" Wilson in 1912.
