NEW YORK - Tyler Austin, the Yankees’ newest first baseman, didn't exactly own the Stadium in his 2017 debut, going 0-for-3 while striking out twice and hitting into a double play. No one’s holding it against Austin; he suffered a predictable case of the jitters and the Bombers were pulverized by the Rangers, anyway. But woven into the fabric of Saturday’s 8-1 blowout was the beginning of an important transition at the Yankees’ weakest position.
On any given afternoon during a Yankees homestand, there's a good chance you’ll find a young, handsome, 6-7 athlete walking the streets of midtown Manhattan. The international tourists might not recognize him (yet) but most everyone else in the neighborhood certainly does by now. “Look, it’s him,” is a familiar whisper Aaron Judge hears more and more these days. But the Yankees slugger doesn’t hide behind a security detail.
NEW YORK – Hand on their hearts, the Yankees swear they’re not freaking out just yet about a losing streak that stands at seven games, or the awful bullpen which failed (again) in the 8-3 defeat to the Angels or the fact that the Red Sox now own first place. An emergency? It feels that way, no matter what the Bombers say to the contrary. This much is certain: the positive vibe that buoyed the Bombers throughout the first two months has been replaced by their growing deficiencies.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
