January 12, 2002 Does anyone remember a June 1985 afternoon game against the Cubs in which Christensen and Foster hit each hit home runs and the Mets won? My Dad and I both skipped work and school, and it is a treasured childhood memory.
February 1, 2002 He was afringe player who never really accomplished anything. He had potential but fizzled out. He was shipped out as part of a great trade for the Mets. I haven't seen the name Laschelle Tarver( who was also in that trade) for years but I think I have a minor league card of his in my basement. How do you go through life with a name like Laschelle?
May 14, 2002 What I remember most is when he traded his number from 35 to 7, because Joe Sambito had been acquired and wanted his usual 35. On WOR, Murphy went into a long monologue stating that if you get number 7 there was a lot of baseball history in number 7 in NY. It was obvious he meant Mickey Mantle. After he was done, Ralph Kiner, who probably was not feeling any pain chimes in, "Yes, number 7 has alot of history----Eddie Kranepool." Murphy responded---"I meant Mickey Mantle."
February 5, 2003 Christensen's fatal flaw was a big hitch in his swing. He dropped his hands -- the thing that's apparently killing Drew Henson right now. It's very hard to correct.
November 4, 2006 First man ever to step in the batters box against Sidd Finch. Counts for something, right?
