Detroit — Christopher Ilitch, president and CEO of Ilitch Holdings, gave a very strong vote of confidence to general manager Al Avila on Friday. On the day Avila announced manager Brad Ausmus would not return next season, Ilitch praised the work of Avila and his staff. “I am very confident the Detroit Tigers are on a path to sustained success,” Ilitch said after taking part in the club’s 117th team photo.
Detroit — The rules of baseball mandated the Tigers and Minnesota Twins play the second of their four-game series Friday night. But after all the pregame news, it seemed a tad anticlimactic — at least for the home team. The Twins continued to cement their hold on the second wild-card spot with a methodical, 7-3 win over the Tigers, who were playing after the announcement was made that manager Brad Ausmus would not be offered a contract for 2018.
Detroit — As painful and terrifying as the incident was, Jeff Ferrell’s overriding feeling Tuesday was gratitude. “I’m very lucky,” he said. “If it was a couple of inches over my face, it could’ve been a lot worse.”Ferrell, the Tigers’ reliever, was struck behind his right ear by line drive that left the bat of A’s Ryon Healy at 102.6 mph Monday night. Dazed, and with the ball caroming past first base and down toward the tarp, Ferrell ran a few steps toward the Tigers’ dugout before doubling over.
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".
