Twenty years later, the Subway Series has been everything Major League Baseball had hoped it would be. And then some. Sure, there have been lulls in interest along the way, especially when there were six games between the city rivals, and not the present-day four, but tickets were still fairly scarce at Shea Stadium and Citi Field, as well as at the old and new Yankee Stadium. The heck with the buttoned-up purists. The average fan can’t get enough of Mets vs. Yankees.
NEW YORK -- There was a time, not that long ago, when several Mets scouts thought Rafael Montero was as good a prospect as there was in their pitching-rich organization. One can only wonder if those scouts are still employed. Montero’s latest failure was an abbreviated three-inning start Wednesday afternoon in a 5-1 loss to the Texas Rangers. In laboring through 87 pitches, Montero gave up four runs (all earned) and five hits.
NEW YORK -- Michael Conforto is a lead-off hitter by necessity. Either way, the Mets don’t care. They’re overjoyed by what’s transpired since Conforto forced his way on the roster in spring training and not long after he solved their problems at the top of their batting order. "Do I think his future is at lead-off? Probably not,” manager Terry Collins said Wednesday prior to the afternoon series finale against Texas. “But what he’s given us, we couldn’t replace.”He’s given the Mets a lot.
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".
