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.

Tell Me Something Good

Johan Santana is throwing from flat ground in St. Lucie and hopes to be ready for Opening Day. Adam Rubin has the story here, MetsBlog offers SNY video here.

Even with too many other signs pointing downward, and even as there are “no assurances” that the ace of the staff will be ready to face the Braves by April 5 (or that Johan will ever really be Johan again), geez it feels good to know on a Thursday night in January that Johan Santana was throwing from flat ground in St. Lucie earlier today.

Also good: Friend of FAFIF Sharon Chapman on the run once more for the Tug McGraw Foundation. Details on contributing to a worthy cause here.

    As always Greg, thank you for your support. Faith and Fear in Flushing is the best blog sponsor a runner could ever ask for.

    Hi Greg,

    I’d trust what Johan says about when he’d be ready to pitch more than anyone in the Met front office. He told us last year he wouldn’t be ready anytime soon despite our G.M. telling us we might be surprised at how quickly he may return.
