Bruce Jenkins: New rules insult the grand old gameThe commissioner panicked. He just couldn’t leave it alone. Just when Rob Manfred was adhering to common sense on the big-league level, he authorized pace-of-play changes that will amount to widespread disgrace in the minor leagues this season. Can you imagine a batter standing on second base at the start of the 10th inning? Probably not, because you can’t help wondering how he got there. Did he sneak in a double during the commercial break?
Warriors need healthy Draymond Green for the playoffs•It’s an injury that has been downplayed for months, and it’s not likely to be an issue as the Warriors trudge their way to the regular-season finish line. Once the playoffs start, though, they’re going to need a healthy Draymond Green. Green hurt his shooting shoulder way back in October, and it’s been a problem since.
Warriors-Lakers brings its own brand of intrigueFor months it looked like a cakewalk on the Warriors’ schedule: Lakers at Oracle Arena on Wednesday night, following two days off, and surely a comfortable win leading up to the playoffs. It might still turn out that way, but this could be the most interesting coaching matchup yet between coach Steve Kerr and his protege, Luke Walton. Quite often, when these teams play, the Warriors find themselves a bit groggy after sampling the L.A. party scene.
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".
