We live in Bizzaredelphia, where summer leagues and futures games have become more important and easier to watch than the events that actually count in the standings. The minors mean more than the majors, the drafts are the highlight of the season and we always seem to be waiting for the start of Eagles training camp even though disappointment has been the final destination for 56 straight years.
NORWICH, Conn. – Jhailyn Ortiz wanted the help of an interpreter, but one was not required when the subject turned to Monday night’s Home Run Derby down in Miami. “Did you see it?” the Phillies minor-league slugger was asked. “Aaron Judge,” he said before Williamsport teammate Jesus Azuaje could ask the question in Spanish. “Oh what power.”Long ball apparently is a universal language, and it is one that Ortiz is still learning but already speaks quite well.
NORWICH, Conn. — One of the first scouting reports I received on Adam Haseley came from inside my family. My nephew, a two-year captain and four-year starter on the Rutgers University baseball team, asked me recently whom the Phillies had drafted in the first round. I told him they selected an outfielder from Virginia. My nephew, a North Jersey kid and Yankees fan, remembered him. “We played them,” Michael Carter told me. “I don’t think we got him out all weekend.”My nephew was wrong.
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".
