The false narrative of the Yankee season continues to be this one: Because they seem to be set up for future seasons, that they are just some underdog team this season, as if they’re the Little Pinstripers That Could. Only they’re not. Say it again: The general manager didn’t make all those moves at the trade deadline just to get the first wild card in the American League. He made the deals to win the AL East. Which the Yankees still should.
Everybody else can go right ahead and get into the game of what-about-ism with Jemele Hill, and what ESPN has done in cases like this in the past – from Rush Limbaugh to Curt Schilling to Doug Adler, a tennis commentator who lost his job this year because he said that Venus Williams was using “guerilla” tactics in a match, as if anybody in their right minds thought he meant gorilla. All of that is fair game now in all the conversation about Jemele Hill.
It was the night of Game 7 of the 2007 American League Championship Series, and what would be one of the great nights in Terry Francona's baseball life by the time it was over. Once, in 2004, in another ALCS, Francona's Red Sox would start the greatest baseball comeback of them all at Fenway Park, in Games 4 and 5 against the Yankees, after falling behind in that series, 3-0.
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".
