It's the Gesture That Counts

I’d hoped the Mets would make tickets available at 1962 prices at least once this year, and they did…twice! It was a limited number with limited notice, but I love the gesture for three reasons:

1) Tickets (if bought at the service charge-free Citi Field windows) cost $2.50, which sounds like what an upper deck-type ticket […]

Narrow Left Wing Conspiracy

Mike Pelfrey’s been re-signed, so that’s a load off our minds. If we didn’t have the tall wonder’s shortcomings on which to dwell, what starter’s lack of progress would obsess us ahead of Spring Training?

Jon Niese’s probably, which seems a little quick, considering he’s only 25 and has yet to make more than 30 starts […]

Here's to the Winners, Losers & DVD

Congratulations to the five Faith and Fear in Flushing readers who each won a copy of Baseball’s Greatest Games: 1986 World Series Game 6 from A&E Home Entertainment in association with MLB Productions. These five industrious fellows answered a quiz issued last Tuesday to coincide with the 25th anniversary of what was then indisputably the greatest World […]

David & Roger's BP Adventure

Put aside the third consecutive losing record, the now-perennial fourth-place finish and all that has contributed to the long-term disappointment that seems to define this franchise around this time of year. Consider instead what […]

The Tug of the Run

The Mets may be out of the pennant race, but one Mets fan continues on a great run.

Our friend Sharon Chapman, who has raced many miles and raised many dollars for the Tug McGraw Foundation, wanted to let her fellow Metophiles know she is captaining Team McGraw’s crew as they take on the Rock ‘n’ […]
