In recent weeks Miami Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich has made it no secret he wants to be traded. The club has already moved Giancarlo Stanton, Dee Gordon, and Marcell Ozuna in cost-cutting moves, leaving them with a bare-bones roster plus Yelich. He's not happy about it. The Marlins don't have to trade Yelich.
For almost five years now we’ve heard about the luxury tax plan. The Yankees were planning to get under the $189M luxury tax threshold back in 2014, but when they missed the postseason in 2013, that went by the wayside. Nowadays we’re talking about the Yankees getting under the $197M luxury tax plan in 2018, and they’re in position to do it. The roster looks formidable and there is still $22M in payroll space available.
Within the last week the Pittsburgh Pirates traded franchise player Andrew McCutchen to the Giants and staff ace Gerrit Cole to the Astros. Neither move came as a surprise. After all, McCutchen and Cole had been popping up in trade rumors for weeks. Those rumors weren't enough to soften the blow for Pirates fans. A Pirates fan recently started a petition on Change.org asking MLB to force Pirates owner Bob Nutting to sell the team, ostensibly to an owner more committed to winning.
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".
