Detroit — So, why no help from the Tigers coaching staff during the eighth inning of the game Tuesday night at Comerica Park during which two baserunners were fooled in a 3-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals? It’s because everything happened so quickly. Victor Martinez’s liner to right. Jorge Bonifacio’s sprint to the corner to glove it. And a bullet of a relay to Eric Hosmer at first, which not only doubled off Mikie Mahtook, but beat Justin Upton’s tag-and-sprint from third base to home plate.
Detroit — What the Tigers want to avoid, at all costs, in the coming days and weeks is any sense that this 2017 season is already in 2018 mode. But forgive witnesses who Tuesday night sat at Comerica Park and watched the Tigers lose for the second consecutive evening to the Kansas City Royals, this time by a 3-1 score that perhaps hinted this team’s best days in 2017 have expired.
Detroit — Phone lines were ablaze Tuesday. And there was no sign flames were subsiding as big-league general managers continued their trade talk six days before the July 31 deadline. It is known that Tigers general manager Al Avila has been dealing with multiple inquiries about three players: Justin Wilson, Justin Verlander, and Alex Avila, with Wilson the most heavily pursued because of his back-end bullpen prowess, contract status, and potential payoff for a playoff-grade team.
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".
