CC Sabathia politely cut the question short, one that contained the premise that Didi Gregorius’ performance this season has flown under the radar. “Not to us,” the veteran lefthander said. “We know how good he is. He’s up there with the best shortstops in the league.”Sabathia paused a second and considered what he had said. “And it’s awesome to be able to say that, with him taking over for such a big player,” Sabathia continued.
SEATTLE — Joe Girardi didn’t exactly knock Gary Sanchez over with praise. And while not outright criticizing the 24-year-old catcher, and sprinkling in positive comments as well, Girardi made clear he feels there’s plenty of work to be done. “I think he’s had a decent year,” Girardi said before Sunday’s 6-4 win over the Mariners when he was asked to evaluate his young catcher’s season to this point. While saying Sanchez’s offensive numbers “are pretty good,” Girardi’s focus was more on defense.
And it could not have come at a better time. The Yankees wrapped up a three-city, 11-game trip to start the season’s second half with a 6-4 victory over the Mariners Sunday afternoon at Safeco Field. Rookie Clint Frazier’s two-run double in a three-run sixth snapped a 4-4 tie and the Yankees’ new-look bullpen turned in a dominant 5 1/3 scoreless innings.
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".
