TORONTO — Most Yankees and Blue Jays were not even out on the field Sunday for not one but two national anthems. All indications were this was not a protest. It was indifference, which seems to be fine with a large segment of the American populace. They are OK with you setting your fantasy football lineup rather than publicly standing for an anthem, but how dare you use your First Amendment rights to protest what you view as problematic issues in our country during that song.
TORONTO — Ryan Goins had played the role of human out for Masahiro Tanaka. In four seasons as a Yankee, Tanaka had no more reliable soft spot than the Blue Jays infielder. So Tanaka seemed in trouble, but not really in the sixth inning Friday night. He had walked pinch-hitter Kendrys Morales on four pitches. He said afterward he was trying to get Morales out, but he worked carefully because there were two down and because his human out was on deck. “I know it,” Goins told me. “[Tanaka] knows it.
A baseball season goes where it goes, beyond prediction, expectation. Imagine if I had I told you in spring training that the playoff center fielders for the top seeds would be Chris Taylor and Jason Kipnis. Taylor was a utility player who never had played the outfield professionally. Kipnis was the entrenched second baseman of the defending AL champions who last played the outfield in college.
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".
