Four in a Row

I have goals in life — many of them involve watching baseball. In particular, I want to see (1) a perfect game and (2) an unassisted triple play. I almost saw Mussina retire 27 batters in a row on TV, and a coworker offered me tickets to the Paw Sox game where teen idol Bronson Arroyo pitched his perfect game. Alas, we had other plans. . . .

None of my “goals” involve home runs. I’m more of a fan of small ball: the bunt, the hit-and-run, the sacrifice, the steal. “Get on, get over, get home,” that’s my baseball mantra.

But it was so exciting — not to mention historic — to see Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek hit four consecutive home runs in the fourth inning of tonight’s game against the Yankees. Wicked exciting!
