Ordinarily you could just chalk this up to Philly Being Philly. Classless mongoloids doing what they do best after getting smoked in the playoffs. But not tonight. Not knowing that Matt Harvey is a diehard Rangers fan:
The stars aligned on this one. And I’ll give credit where credit is due, this win goes to this guy:
There was also a Flyers fan who tried to join in with #Harveying movement with a picture in a Fly or Die shirt but he deleted it like a puss. Pretty sure he jinxed the whole thing for Philadelphia. Second star to St. Louis and third star to Nash but first star belongs to Harvey

You go 7.1 inning without walking anyone and only giving up 2 runs during your first start in Fenway and I’ll wear whatever you wear. Tanaka could show up next start in a fucking dress and I’m cool with it as long as he pitches like this. Normally I wouldn’t be cool with my pitcher carrying a purse cause I never understand the Asians I see on the subway, but I’m about to head to Canal St. and buy one off Tanaka’s cousin right now.
Tanaka is so hot right now he could take a crap, wrap it in tinfoil, put a couple fish hooks on it and sell it to Queen Elizabeth as earrings.
Oh yeah this has to hurt…
Hey Jay Horwitz…hey Sandy Alderson…hey Jeff Wilpon…Harvey 3:16 says Fuck You! Because it’s absolutely ridiculous in the year 2014 for a grown man to be chastised for taking a picture flipping the bird, we here at Barstool New York are Team Harvey.

Look for Carcillo in the lineup for Fast tonight.
Brady Simmonds. Get as chippy as you want. Keep giving the Blueshirts 6 power plays a game while, to their credit, they remain disciplined without getting bent over like the soft bitches Philly thought they’d be. Well, almost…
Despite the series being deadlocked, it’s obvious that the Rangers have been playing better hockey. For some reason, they let off the accelerator & allowed the Flyers a little false confidence. That’s fine. If Simmonds thinks putting on the foil is what his squad needs to do to take the series, so be it. For a team not celebrated for their offense, the Blueshirts are the 3rd-highest scoring road team in the Eastern bracket. No one in the East has given up less away from home – even the mighty Bruins. And I’ll give you all one guess who’s allowed the 2nd-most in their own building. So once NY builds a big enough lead and turns the Philly faithful back into the miserable turds they are, then maybe the teams can iron out their “chippiness”…

Love that old as dinosaur buffoon Jay Horwitz who does nothing but fuck around and SUCK at his job weighing in on this. He and Sandy Alderson dick around cracking jokes having a grand old time stirring up shit with the fans and the media all the time but now they’re on their cloud of judgment handing out life lessons to all the sinners. Ridiculous.
Whatever. This is so patently ridiculous that we’re even talking about this. But we all stand with you in solidarity, Matt. Let #Harveying begin:
(Bleacher Report) -”Pierce is no stranger to hitting big shots when games are on the line. Many New York Knicks fans have drifted off to sleep only to have their dreams turn into nightmares that are haunted by the smug smile that typically washes over Pierce after he hits a contest-altering shot.But while so many envy his late-game prowess to the point of hatred, there’s no denying how useful he can be. The Nets don’t win Game 1 without Pierce stepping up in the fourth quarter, and they won’t win their series against the Raptors unless he has similar feats left in him.”
The quote above is only a small chunk of the article that I linked too, but rather than have you go through the entire thing I took the liberty of selecting the only quotes that you need to know.
What about Amazon? Pretty sure I can buy anything on Amazon……..
Anyway, game one went about as well as Nets fans could have hoped for. I mentioned the keys to winning this series being Dwill playing like he did in Utah, and Pierce being able to put the nail in the coffin, exactly like he ended up doing. I’m sure it’s real easy for anyone who isn’t a Nets or Celtics fan to jump all over these quotes, but if we are really being honest with ourselves how could anyone say he is wrong? How can anyone deny that certain players are just born with an ability to perform their best in the biggest spots? Born with the ability to make a fellow NBA superstar look like a child, crying on the court as soon as the final buzzer sounds? The Truth is “The Truth,” has literally been haunting players’ dreams with game-winning, last-second shots for the last 10+ years now. From Kobe to Stat to DRose, etc…etc….the list goes on and on. If you don’t think he’s good for a few more daggers in this Toronto series AND a few in next round, you’re fooling yourself. Does everyone love Paul Pierce? Of course not. Would everyone love to have him on their team with the ball in his hands and the game on the line? 100% yes, and if they say they wouldn’t, they’re lying. Nets in 6.
This is what we live for boys, the Yankees and the Sox playing meaningful baseball. Now I know it is only April and there is a lot of season to go, but my general theme for this season has been “every game counts” and these games count just a bit more. If we can get 2 of 3 or even a sweep, we will be comfortably in first place and distance ourselves for the last place Red Sox. Now anything can happen between now and September, but while we are hot, we have to stay hot. So what are we looking at?
We are rolling out Tanaka, Pineda and CC in this series and that means it does not matter who the Sox are pitching. If we can’t win with these 3 at the front of our rotation, we have much bigger problems. This is going to be the front end of our rotation for the Playoffs so we need them to capitalize early and build that rhythm. Lester will be tough tonight and Lackey will be tough on Thursday, but the last time we faced Lackey he got lit up like a fucking christmas tree. So hopefully we have some momentum after the first 2 games.
The bullpen is still dog shit even with Robertson back to lock up the 9th inning, so we’re gonna need the starters to got deeper into these games than the 6th inning. Pitch counts haven’t been a problem for Tanaka and CC yet, but it is time to take the training wheels off Pineda and see what he can do on the open road.
We need to open the flood gates here and compete offensively for an entire game, everyday this week. The reason we need to do that? Because a Yankees vs. Red Sox game is never over until the last out is made. Normally 5 hours after the first out is made. Last week we blew a 4 run lead against the Rays and you cannot afford to have anything like that happen in Boston. The Sox can’t hit with runners in scoring position which should help out our pitchers, who tend to get into and work out of trouble in the early innings so far this year. With all of this, the biggest story could be Teixeira (I have to Google the spelling every single time) who has a lot to prove to the Yankee fans and his team, that he is still a legitimate threat.
So that’s what we have in front of us people, the Sox are coming off an emotional day and weekend with everything else going on in the city and it is time for the Yankees to strike and establish dominance in the AL East.
