MASHANTUCKET, Conn. — The Red Sox are getting closer to a resolution to rename Yawkey Way, president Sam Kennedy said at Foxwoods Resort Casino last night. Speaking to reporters before Winter Weekend kicked off, Kennedy said the team is in active conversations with the city of Boston to rename the street, which is named after former Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey.
Tom Werner, the Red Sox chairman and one of the owners, made no effort to cloak the team’s offseason intentions while speaking at Foxwoods Casino last night as part of Winter Weekend. “We are in active negotiations with J.D. Martinez,” Werner said matter-of-factly. “We’re hopeful to make a deal. But as I’ve said it takes two people to make that deal.”The Herald reported yesterday that the Sox’ current offer to the free agent outfielder was for five years and $125 million.
The Red Sox are coming back to over-the-air local TV for the first time since 2005. NESN announced yesterday that Boston 25 TV will air six Red Sox spring training games that NESN will produce. The games will air on Channel 25 in the Boston area and on NESN outside of the Boston TV market. “We are thrilled about this new agreement with Boston 25, as we will now have more spring training games than ever before (20 total),” Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy wrote in an email to the Herald.
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".
