It’s a good thing the folks from Rawlings stopped by Salt River Fields the other day to measure many of the Arizona Diamondbacks position players for new baseball gloves. Chris Owings is going to need three different styles and sizes, thank you very much. That’s because manager Torey Lovullo just met with the 26-year-old and told him that instead of being the team’s everyday shortstop or second baseman, Owings will become more of a super utility player.
Behind every door of Christian Walker’s wild walk through the major leagues thus far, there has been a wall. Considering the position he plays and the four different organizations that, however briefly, acquired his services, the wall hasn’t just been any wall. It’s been more like the Hoover Dam at every stop.
The baseball world has had plenty to say about the Tampa Rays’ notorious self-dismantling project, but one of their most recent former standouts wasn’t about to pile on and trash the franchise for its systematic downsizing. Diamondbacks outfielder Steven Souza said he’s glad that’s above his pay scale. “Yeah, the beautiful part about my contract is that it says I just play outfield,” Souza said Thursday upon being formally introduced following his trade from Tampa.
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".
