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.

By Thursday, You'll Need a Drink

David Cone, a Met from 1987 through 1992 and again for a spell in 2003 (we don’t know what he did most of the years in between), is lending his celebrity to help to help those still hurting in the aftermath of stupid storm Sandy…which I’m tired of dignifying as “super”. Coney will be guest-bartending at the baseball hub of New York, Foley’s on 33rd St., between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Manhattan, Thursday night, November 15, between 6 PM and midnight. All proceeds the drinks our onetime 20-game winner pours during that period, plus all his tips, will be going to storm relief.

Aside from the nobility of the cause, I might add FAFIF readers will need a drink by November 15, not only to (hopefully) toast the prospective Cy Young fortunes of our most recent 20-game winner, but to recover from the contest we’re about to introduce into the Metsosphere this weekend. We’re giving away a great prize, but we’re gonna make ya earn it.

You’ve been warned.

    Now that’s a Number 44 we can all be proud of:) Good on you guys for supporting the cause.

    Speaking of Cy Young awards (and MVP awards for that matter) since when are there “finalists”?? Suppose you want to vote for someone who is not a finalist? I think you get 5 votes for Cy Young, so if there are only 3 finalists, how does that work?

    And after the flurry of announcements a few days ago about these “finalists”, today I couldn’t find one reference to the term on the MLB website, so maybe they couldn’t figure it out either.

  • Ken,

    What tis means is that the vote has already happened, everyone’s ballot has been gone over & these are the top 3 vote-getters,
