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.

If It's Sunday, It Must Be LoDuca

The News is reporting the Mets traded Gaby Hernandez and another minor leaguer yet unnamed for Paul LoDuca.

So what else is new? Another prospect who may or not haunt us for a proven commodity who's getting long in the tooth. I had the feeling we weren't getting either of the two catchers who had offers outstanding. That was weird to begin with. LoDuca's always seemed like a real character guy. He also seems like he may be following the Mientkiewicz career trajectory. But I tend to go with guys I've heard of who've done good things not too long ago, so yea for us for now.

A little historical perspective, as if you couldn't come up with it yourself, is at Gotham Baseball.

    Please recall that it was I who broached the LoDuca subject what now seems likes months but was mere weeks ago.
    It seems to me that Sr. Minaya has a vacation planned for January and wishes to get all his ducks in a row so he may enjoy hisself while breaking stuff at Steinbrenner's hotel in Tampa. Kinda of cool that the Mets are the only team doing something in all of baseball this year so far; guess we'll see how cool it all was in June and August…

    As usual, the real visionaries in this are:
    1) You, for the reason you just mentioned and many others.
    2) Omar
    3) Myself, according to this post from February 22, when Faith and Fear wasn't even a week old:
    It's not easy work being a visionary, is it?

    It is hard work but the feeling of superiority to one's so-called peers makes it all worthwhile. Right, Omar??

    Omar had the Lasik, so that explains his visionaryness.
    We had Lindauer.
