Add Justin Verlander to the growing number of players and coaches who believe "juiced" baseballs are the reason behind this season's record-setting home run explosion. The 34-year-old righthander took to Twitter Sunday evening to respond to ESPN's Buster Olney, who addressed the eye-opening rate in which players are hitting home runs this season. "Seventy-five players with 20 or more homers this year," Olney wrote. " In 2014, there were 57 for the entire season."
The last few years the Knicks have been a dysfunctional mess of a franchise. From poor play, to ill-fated signings, to the toxic Phil Jackson era, the Knicks have been a nightmare their long-suffering fan base has had to painfully endure. And yet, it may all be worth it. Because in 2018, the Knicks may have their wildest far-fetched dream come true: seeing LeBron James suit up in orange and blue.
Following Luis Severino's eight earned-run implosion against the Red Sox on Saturday, Joe Girardi said the flop was simply a reminder that Severino is "human." Girardi may need to take Severino's pulse to double-check that claim, because the 23-year-old All-Star returned to his robotic ace-like self on Thursday, pitching 6.1 dominant innings in the Yankees' 7-5 win over the Mets to complete the four-game Subway Series sweep.
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".
