Mets fans ought to know where their money is going, since it’s clear that much of it isn’t ending up on the field. So, on Saturday afternoon, an email was sent directly to Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon. The questions centered on payroll, a topic he hasn’t publicly addressed since Sept. 2014. Through a spokesman later that afternoon, Wilpon declined comment. This came as no surprise. For years, the Wilpons have shown little willingness to level with their fans.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The Mets’ contingent departed from the winter meetings with a deal in place for a reliever to beef up the bullpen, Anthony Swarzak. But the work continues for general manager Sandy Alderson, who must now find a solution for his team’s vacancy at second base. At least for now, the most likely trade target appears to be the Indians’ Jason Kipnis. A source told Newsday that the teams have continued trade discussions that began leading up to the winter meetings.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The next phase of Matt Harvey’s tumultuous career will apparently unfold right where it began — in Flushing. Sandy Alderson on Tuesday seemingly squashed the trade rumors floating over the Dark Knight. The Mets general manager said he’s heeding the advice of his new manager Mickey Callaway and pitching coach Dave Eiland, who have pushed to keep Harvey for the 2018 season.
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".
