Observations from and analysis of the Nats’ series win over the Reds1. The Nats’ mighty offense was mostly shut down on Sunday afternoon but not before striking again over the first two games of the series. The Nats had 13 hits (including four homers) and an astounding nine walks on Friday night and then a jaw-dropping 18 runs on 19 hits and seven walks on Saturday. A number of players put up gaudy numbers, but two guys who stood out to me were Brian Goodwin and Michael A. Taylor. 2.
Observations from and analysis of the Orioles’ series loss to the Indians1. More and more, this is feeling like the end of a run. This series dropped the O’s to 13-27 since their 22-10 start. The series left the O’s with a run differential of minus-63, second worst in the American League. The series dropped the O’s to a woeful 6-14 against the AL Central this season.
Observations from and analysis of the Nats’ series loss at the Marlins1. Is it possible for a bullpen to cost you a game without throwing a single pitch? Yes, and this happened to the Nats on Wednesday afternoon. Max Scherzer was clearly out of gas in the bottom of the eighth inning, and yet Dusty Baker did not go to his bullpen. You think this is the case with a better bullpen? You think that the Dodgers aren’t going to Kenley Jansen in that spot?
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".
