500 Reasons to Love Manny Ramirez

500 for Manny!
The 59% of you who voted Manny Ramirez as the first player to reach their respective milestone in a recent poll of ours, congratulations.

Congrats also goes out to Manny, who accomplished a feat that only 23 others have, smoking career homer #500 on the first pitch he saw from former teammate Chad Bradford in the seventh inning, sending it sailing into the right-center field seats.

As a bonus, it gave the Red Sox a 5-3 lead over the Baltimore Orioles.

I'm not sure that Manny knew that this was his 500th homer. Doesn't he celebrate like this after every one?
