LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Free agency is far from free. Any roster holes the Toronto Blue Jays decide to patch using that route is going to take a hefty sum of money and, in some cases, a scary amount of term. There isn’t usually a lot of surplus value to be found in free agency. But GM Ross Atkins can also go the trade route, something he’s mentioned as a possibility since the off-season began for the Jays more than six weeks ago.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Even coming off a season that saw him go from High-A to Triple-A in less than four months, Andrew Case still can’t help but think about the performance that changed his life more than four years ago. Taking the mound at Rogers Centre in the semifinals of Roberto Alomar’s inaugural Tournament 12, the Saint John, N.B., native hurled a seven-inning no-no to finish the tourney with nine scoreless innings and 19 strikeouts.
The seventh was anything but. Josh Naylor uncoiled his 225-pound frame from the left side of the plate and suddenly there was one less baseball for Dunedin Blue Jays hitting coach Corey Hart to pick out of his BP bin. There isn’t much mystery when it comes to the 20-year-old Mississauga, Ont., product’s game, and Naylor’s effortless pop had teammates at Saturday’s Fall Stars Game at Salt River Fields shaking their heads when he sauntered away from the plate.
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".
