We’re roughly two weeks from Opening Day, and a few positions are still up for grabs. Cory Spangenberg, Carlos Asuaje and Jose Pirela are battling for the second base job (with prospect Luis Urías not too far away), while a bevy of talented outfielders could fill the corner outfield spots. While it may seem like Manager Andy Green has the toughest job in Peoria right now, he wouldn’t want it any other way. This is what the Padres have been building toward.
MacKenzie Gore, the promising 19-year-old lefty pitcher, is in Peoria for his first Spring Training with the Padres. He recently talked with MLB Pipeline’s Jonathan Mayo about his first professional season, his signature leg kick and what he’s working on this spring.
Before Saturday night’s SoCal Regional Division IV matchup with Mount Miguel, Christian High warmed up in red, long-sleeve shirts adorned with the slogan, “It’s Closing Time,” on the back. When push came to shove, the 12th-seeded Patriots closed out. Christian emerged from host Mount Miguel’s gym with a 70-58 victory. Nashom Carter led the Patriots (24-9) with 22 points, followed by Jackson Larsen, who contributed 18 to the winning effort.
Today marks my 1 year anniversary with MLBAM, working with @Padres on social media. Last season was such an experience, and I'm looking forward to more great stuff in the future! https://t.co/NWiIQVUmF3
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".
