ABOUT US

Jason Fry and Greg Prince

Greg Prince discovered the Mets when he was 6, during the magical summer of 1969. He is a Long Island-based writer, editor and communications consultant. Contact him here.

Jason Fry is a Brooklyn writer whose first memories include his mom leaping up and down cheering for Rusty Staub. Check out his other writing here.

Trying It On For Size

Could have they come up with a worse name?
Yes. Absolutely. Examples are abundant.
Safeco Field. Petco Park. McAfee Coliseum. Yadier Molina Memorial Stadium (though I am partial to the memorial aspect).
It could have been worse. That's the best I can say for CitiField, future home of your New York Mets, at this early date. I've been living with it for 24 hours — practicing it, imagining it, mulling it and wow, it gets less likable every time I say it.
CitiField.
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to CitiField.
The Mets return home tonight to open a three-game set with the Cubs at CitiField.
We go live to Bruce Beck out at CitiField for more.
And at CitiField, the Mets topped the Phillies 3-2 on a Carlos Beltran home run.
Good news for the CitiField faithful.
It's going to be an exciting weekend at CitiField.
No, stay on the 7 and get off at the CitiField stop.
I'll just meet you at CitiField, OK?
This is going to take some time. I suppose we'll have plenty of it.
Reminder: The final piece of the 2006 retrospective, conveniently touching on a very related subject, is lumbering around third in Ramon Castro fashion, but will arrive soon.
