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.

It's dangerous to attempt to piece together a 25-man roster even at this late stage of the winter, but I'm going to give it a try.

The catcher will be a Metropolitan-American.

Around the infield we'll see four Metropolitan-Americans.

Each of the three outfield spots will be occupied by a Metropolitan-American.

The bench? All Metropolitan-Americans.

Five Metropolitan-Americans will fill out the rotation. The bullpen, from the long man to the closer, will have nothing but Metropolitan-Americans.

You can really root for a team that's made up of Metropolitan-Americans. Taken as a unit, it should be a pretty good group we can all get behind.

And the man who put it together? I think we'll eventually look at him as a credit to his race.

The pennant race.
