MASHANTUCKET, Conn. - While the Red Sox haven't yet made a major offseason move, changes outside Fenway Park are coming soon. In August, team owner John Henry announced the club's decision to pursue a name change for the street outside Fenway Park, which was named for longtime owner Tom Yawkey. Yawkey's racist history caused the team to explore renaming the street. On Friday, at Red Sox Winter Weekend at Foxwoods Resort Casino, team president Sam Kennedy provided an update on the renaming.
MASHANTUCKET, Conn. - Like many parks around baseball, safety netting at Fenway Park will be extended down the left and right field lines in 2018. At Red Sox Winter Weekend at Foxwoods Resort Casino, team president Sam Kennedy discussed the expansion of the safety netting for the upcoming season. "As you know before 2016 we expanded to the inside wall of the dugouts and we're going to beyond that in 2018," Kennedy said.
Last week, the Red Sox announced they had avoided arbitration with all but one player. That player, perhaps the most important player on the roster, was Mookie Betts. Though the club and Betts (and his agent) can come to terms before the arbitration hearing in February, the disparity between the two sides is still noteworthy. NBC Sports Boston's Evan Drellich reported that the Red Sox offered $7.5 million while Betts is seeking $10.5 million.
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".
