With the Boston College football team waiting to find out their bowl destination and the Boston College men’s basketball team off to one of its best starts in years, it time to talk about – you guessed it –Boston College baseball. On Tuesday evening, the athletic department released the Eagles’ complete 2018 schedule and, thus, started the countdown to opening day.
October was a busy one around Major League Baseball, and not just on the field. While fans of the game were treated to a wildly entertaining postseason, including one of the most exciting World Series in recent memory, several organizations made waves in the media, as the past five weeks have seen the managers of three playoff teams lose their jobs, along with the majority of the coaching staff of a fourth.
Patience is a virtue. At least that’s what we’re told to believe. But in a time when information, answers and results are never more than a click away, waiting can be the hardest thing someone can endure. No one knows this better than Reds pitcher Deck McGuire. After being selected with the 11th overall pick in the 2010 MLB Draft by the Blue Jays out of Georgia Tech, it appeared to many around baseball that the right-hander was on the fast track to the big leagues.
@RapSheet Bennett trying to maliciously, and intentionally, take out knees, dude trying to hop in the stands to fight...no suspensions. JuJu Smith-Schuster throws a borderline illegal block into burfict and stands over him...suspension. Yeah, Rog is really worth that contract.
@CDDWAKEUPCALL@JonHeyman I'm not knocking them in the least and never said I was surprised by it. Just saying it's interesting to watch as they did a hell of a job last year playing the "young likable group" and within a three month span are going back to their roots with the big signings.
@JonHeyman So Yankees going back to their days as the Evil Empire after one season of being likeable. On the flip side the Pirates are kidding themselves if they're going to hold onto Cole to try and "compete" this year. The Yanks have a ton of prospects, Huntington needs to rebuild now.
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".
