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.

Enjoy This One

Enjoy this one. There isn’t much time in every sense of the concept.

Enjoy this one. There’s another game in a couple of hours.

Enjoy this one. There’s only four more overall.

Enjoy this one. Wright’s shoulder issue sounds vexing, to say the least. Let’s enjoy baseball news that isn’t solely injury news.

Enjoy this one. D’Arnaud’s absence is a bit of a concocted mystery (it doesn’t have to be so mysterious), but at least we got another look at the flexibly pronounceable Juan Centeno.

Enjoy this one. Maybe we’ll find something to say about Wilfredo Tovar and Erik Goeddel before this weekend is done.

Enjoy this one. Dillon Gee balked, the first Mets balk of the year, and there was no ultimate screwage from it.

Enjoy this one. Curtis Granderson is hot. It probably won’t carry over into April, but he seems like a swell guy.

Enjoy this one. We beat the Nationals. We almost never do that and not too many others do, either.

Enjoy this one. Gee faltered, but our bullpen picked him up.

Enjoy this one. Lots of hits, a decent amount of runs and a neat double play salvaged from a bad throw home.

Enjoy this one. Gary and Ron. Howie and Josh. It doesn’t get better.

Enjoy this one. Wilmer Flores looks kind of real. Try to not think what kind of license that gives the front office for not trying to find a legitimate shortstop.

Enjoy this one. It’s baseball on a chilly, rainy day en route to baseball on a chilly, rainy evening and we get to watch it on TV or listen to it on the radio without getting wet and cold.

Enjoy as many of these as you can. There aren’t enough of them left.

    haha, no spoiler alert for those of us who forgot there was a twinbill today?

    crunch time at work to blame.

    glad for the bounce-back after colon’s snoozing instead of covering the bag.

    i must say, this has been the most satisfying of septembers in a while – recent years’ individual pursuits of ‘best-of’ titles notwithstanding.

    a very late mathematical elimination, the team playing hard, and youngsters not named degrom impressing.

    and wow, for all of those stretches of non-existent offense, how nice would it be to reach .500 and come in 2nd?

    a degrom ROY and a duda 30th HR would be some sweet icing.

    This was definitely the most entertaining Citi Field season so far IMO. Not a lot of competition there, though. But still, I’m a Mets fan, I’ll take what I can get.
