Boone has been been in television since retiring in 2009, currently working as the lead analyst for ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball, after a 12-year career, which included a postseason run with the Yankees in '03, in which he delivered an iconic, game-winning home run in Game 7 of that year's American League Championship Series against the Red Sox. However, a caveat in his candidacy may be his lack of coaching experience.
Here are the results -- winner listed first followed by the runners-up, listed alphabetically -- with insight from those who made the picks (selections marked in bold, *indicates Hall of Famer):"I took him over Hack Wilson," Verducci said of Altuve. "Hack, he was a great hitter back in the day -- record 191 RBIs that one season -- but he had some issues off the field. He didn't have a long career. Altuve, perfect all-around player for this pick." "I'm totally biased in my pick," Darlight said.
Free agent Alex Cobb, as well as Lance Lynn, who is expected to decline the $17.4 million qualifying offer extended by St. Louis, could be more-affordable options. Mozeliak on Sunday met with agents from the Wasserman Media Group, which represents Giancarlo Stanton, whom the Cardinals are also pursuing, though their conversations reportedly didn't surround the Majors' reigning home run leader.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
