Royals fans may have to find other ways to entertain themselves this summer…This may be a time for Royals fans to take stock in silver linings and roster shuffles. You’ve been through it before. Heck, it’s pretty much all you had from 1995 through 2012. And now, your primary joy could again come from keeping track of what’s going on in Omaha or rooting for Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez to break the club’s single-season home run record. It wasn’t supposed to be this way, this soon.
Drake needs to step up, now that the Valley has a void…The departure of Wichita State left the Missouri Valley Conference with two voids to fill. One is the glaring gap in the roster of schools and the need to find a tenth member, if not more. The other is more subtle. It’s the lack of a bellwether school supported by a community and media market that can offer the Valley some clout – relatively speaking. That’s where Drake comes in.
The Royals’ bullpen unraveled in the seventh inning of a 7-1 loss to the Twins on Monday, and the offense never threatened to mount any sort of a rally. First off, let’s keep things in context. The Royals have finished .500 or better in 22 seasons, and 13 of those seasons began with a loss. Five of their nine playoff seasons started with a defeat. So, it’s definitely silly to read too much into the pomp, circumstance and excitement of Major League Baseball’s curtain-raiser.
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".
