The Mets need an outfielder and Wednesday they signed one to add some depth to their organization — even if not to their major league roster. With Yoenis Cespedes and Michael Conforto ending their 2017 season in the disabled list, the Mets need another reliable bat in case Conforto, who had shoulder surgery, is not ready for the start of the season, as the Mets fear.
LaTroy Hawkins knew he wasn't pitching well. The Yankees fans who booed him knew he was struggling. The Yankees front office and the coaching staff all knew Hawkins was having a hard time. There was just no hiding it. And Hawkins, the veteran reliever, appreciated that Dave Eiland just came out and talked about it with him. "He's honest. Sometimes, he's brutally honest, but he lets you know what's going on, what he's thinking and what the team is thinking," the former Met and Yankee reliever said.
Maybe you remember Luis Guillorme from spring training. The undersized infielder impressed the Mets brass with his sharp defense and solid arm. He impressed everyone else with his hands — and quick reflexes. Guillorme, the Mets' 11th-ranked prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, made a dramatic catch of Adeiny Hechavarria's bat, which he lost his grip on sending it hurling toward the Mets dugout during a spring training game against the Marlins last spring.
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".
