I have to agree about Christensen. I had high hopes for him and seriously thought he was gonna be a good hitter. As I recall he went to the Dodgers and started out well for them. Don't know what happened after that.
Simmons, I don't think was so much as a bust, as he was victim to a couple of freakish injuries.
