So my wonderful girlfriend asked if Manny was still on #498, and I answered, “No, he got 499 in Seattle on Thursday* so he could do it with any swing,” and just at that moment a pitch crossed the plate and Ramirez thwacked it, and *whomp* there it was. . . and there it went.

The Manny Homerun Tracker web applet is actually kinda cool (Flash required). For instance, click on “Fenway Park” or “Jacob’s Field” to see all Manny’s home-game homers plotted in chronological order.

* I meant Wednesday, of course.
