Independent league baseball always existed in a separate universe, un-tethered from affiliated baseball. But that's starting to change in some important ways. Today, MLB teams pluck indy players for cheap and assign them to minor league teams to round things out or maybe create an opportunity. Scouts are assigned specifically to indy league teams, expanding its importance. In late July that importance grew in a significant way as history was made.
How have four top players in the Yankees organization fared between 2016 and 2017? Let’s connect the stats and see where they’re improving, and still have room to grow. Cale Coshow – PITCHER Cale Coshow spent 2016 in Trenton, with the Double-A Thunder and he’s repeating that level this season. Appearances: 36 in 2016/31 so far in 2017REVIEW: In April, through 9 relief appearances, Coshow walked just 4. He followed that up by walking only 2 in April, also in 9 appearances.
But a new day’s dawning. And that “code,” still ripe after all these years with hyper masculinity, is no longer just accepted. The past few years, and recent incidents, make it clear that change in underway. In a game earlier this season between the Blue Jays and Braves, Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar’s frustration boiled over after lashing out at pitcher Jason Motte’s quick pitch. But he didn’t just lash out; he resorted to using a homophobic word to express his anger.
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".
