Late in the summer, as the Mets dug themselves out of a huge hole to become legitimate playoff contenders, Pete Alonso coined the rallying cry #LFGM. On Monday night, the Marlins turned it around.
After Miami beat the Mets, 8-4, at Citi Field to drop the Mets' elimination number to two, the team took to Twitter to make a change to #LFGM.
"LFGMarlins" the tweet read:

The Mets are used to enduring misery caused by the Marlins at the end of seasons.
In 2007, the Marlins ended the Mets' season on the final day at Shea Stadium after New York had entered Game 162 tied for the Wild Card. That was the game where Tom Glavine gave up seven runs in the first inning and said afterwards that he wasn't devastated.
In 2008, the Marlins ended not only the Mets' season on the final day at Shea Stadium, but ended the lifetime of the ballpark. Again, the Mets entered Game 162 tied for the Wild Card, and again they lost to the Marlins.
With the Mets' elimination number at two, they could be eliminated from the playoff race as soon as Tuesday night.
