The New York Mets have a new unofficial hashtag for social media, #LFGM. Get the F into your hashtags and this season.
If you’re not like my former boss and actually understand how hashtags work, you may have noticed the New York Mets have added a letter to their official hashtag. Now, instead of the simple #LGM, the team has upgraded with the four-letter version, #LFGM.
Unlike the WWE who “got the F out” when they changed from WWF to allow the World Wildlife Fund to continue with their abbreviation, the Mets want you to get the F into your hashtags. They also want you to get your F on board with what they are hoping is a miracle run late in 2019. In this instance, the F stands for fanny.
The Mets are knocking on the door of .500 baseball and could get there within days. Though their chances of making it to the Wild Card Game remain slim considering all of the teams they need to jump over to get there, the team isn’t giving up.
The post-All-Star Game Mets have new life. Even with Pete Alonso slumping, Jeff McNeil’s batting average dipping, and a still rather lifeless Robinson Cano at the plate, the team is finding ways to win. The defense has improved which has helped the elite starting pitching staff thrive.
Most helpful of all, the Mets are playing a lot of bad teams. They swept the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox in consecutive series. More games against below .500 teams help make this pursuit one with a possible happy ending.
Leading the charge is none other than Alonso. Even on days when his bat has been silenced, his voice and typing fingers have not.
On Twitter, Alonso shared an optimistic message to all Mets fans and asked for the full support of everyone.
The one thing Pete did miss is the F in his hashtag. Still, his message has been received. He’s the William Wallace of the 2019 Mets. Other teams may have taken their first-half, but they will never take their meaningful baseball in August and September.

Mets fans are pumped—rightfully so. Left for dead after a rough end to the first half, the team actually got better at the trade deadline. Get the F into your hashtags and onto this team’s bandwagon if you haven’t already.
