ABOUT US

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.

    Tom Glavine. A fucking sleeper cell. I knew it all along.
    Greg, Jason, you guys have done wonderful work this year. This hasn't been a fun or particularly lovable team, but you guys have stuck it out night after night, speaking for and to all us FAFIF fans. This just wasn't our year. It never was. In retrospect it was a disaster waiting to happen. It all seems so clear now. And reading the narrative arc in the posts from this year, I think that's very evident.
    Enjoy having lives again, fellas. Hope to hear from you both over the long, cold winter.
    Let's go Mets.

    Blog offers a timer option. Usually if you see a post that is posted at a time that ends in :00, it probably means we timed it to go up in advance.
