First and foremost, I want to be the first to say that I was against trading Ender Inciarte three months ago. He does fit well with into the Atlanta Braves‘ future plans, and his five years of club control are certainly appealing. However, after careful thought and the omission of any sentimental value Inciarte may hold, trading him for the right guy could do a number of things for the Braves. That ‘right guy’ might just be Ian Happ.
First things first: The Atlanta Braves haven’t been successful in recent years, but they’re still relevant in the world of sports. Their lack of success shouldn’t warrant something of this magnitude being kept so quiet. Once the investigation (along with Coppolella’s resignation) was announced on October 2nd, there were stories from ESPN and Mark Bowman, as expected, but nothing more than routine speculation – mostly from the local guys – leading up to the announcement of the Braves’ punishment.
Atlanta Braves fans have seen faces come and go over the past few years, and I don’t expect that to be any different this off-season. There are guys on the roster that don’t fit into the team’s long-term plans, and there are young guys that need regular playing time in the MLB. Those two groups cannot co-exist. The idea of a rebuild revolves around the introduction and development of the club’s youth.
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".
