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.

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?

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."

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.

First man ever to step in the batters box against Sidd Finch. Counts for something, right?
