Everyone loves the Guardians of the Galaxy and everyone hates the Yankees. They may exist on different ends of the spectrum, but they have both become billion dollar franchises all the same. In 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy #19, the team took on the universe’s one-man Evil Empire in the villainous Thanos, and it all came to a head at Yankee Stadium. It’s hard to believe that the Guardians and Yankees could ever come together so perfectly, but that’s the power of comic books.
More than anything in the world, the Yankees want to be rid of Jacoby Ellsbury before the start of the 2018 season. They have no second or third baseman currently, but it’s the status of Ellsbury as a $63 million bench player over the next three years that the team wants to deal with the most. The Giants’ acquisition of Andrew McCutchen has ruined their last best chance of dumping Ellsbury, but the trade could help them in another way.
The Yankees have finalized their outstanding contracts by agreeing to settle with all eight players without going to an arbitration panel. This means that Dellin Betances, Sonny Gray, Didi Gregorius, Aaron Hicks, Tommy Kahnle, Austin Romine, Adam Warren, and Chasen Shreve are all returning for the 2018 season, barring some kind of trade. Unlike last year, the Yankees decided not to play hardball with Dellin, giving him the raise he was looking for last season.
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".
