1. Which player who spent eight years with the Red Sox is the only pitcher in history to win 500 games?

Cy Young is far and away the winningest pitcher ever with 511 career wins, nearly a hundred more than runner-up Walter Johnson, who had 417. Although he won 192 of those with the Red Sox between 1901 and 1908, Young spent more time with the Indians, for whom he won 270 games.
