Cody Asche brings major-league totals of 390 games and more than 1,300 plate appearances into Royals’ spring training. But after he spent parts of four seasons with the Phillies and last year with the White Sox, a dose of reality also followed Asche to Surprise, Ariz. “I’m really open-minded about this,” said Asche, who signed a minor-league contract with the Royals in December. “I had an experience that many go through, walking into the clubhouse as the new guy.
College basketball’s home stretch often means 10-15 teams have identified themselves as national championship contenders. But another week of unexpected results means that many could be wading in the pool for No. 1 seeds. Losses on Thursday by Cincinnati, Purdue and Ohio State, which entered the week ranked in the top eight, continued to flatten out college basketball near the top and make things tough for bracket projections.
When the 2018 season concludes, the Royals will have closed the book on 50 years of competitive existence with an overall record under .500. We’ll get ’em in the next half-century. But although they’ve posted more losing than winning seasons in their lifetime, there is an underlying truth about the organization that serves as a bottom line for the franchise.
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".
