Greg Prince and Jason Fry
Faith and Fear in Flushing made its debut on Feb. 16, 2005, the brainchild of two longtime friends and lifelong Met fans.

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.

We Need a New 11

No offense, Ramon, but I’m tired of watching you get or giveĀ that high five. Representing the magic number is not intended as a lifetime sinecure, but since you were assigned the task of marking one moment in time, you’ve held onto it for five days.

Enough. Meet your predecessor in 11, Lenny Randle, shown here clutching a sharpie after autographing something for a kid. If our 1977-78 third base stalwart doesn’t blow this clinching countdown toward 10, we’re gonna keep looking for new 11s until we’re forced to resort to Vince Coleman.

You don’t want us to have to do that, do you, Mets?
