With so many ups and downs, it’s been tough to summarize the season the New York Mets have had thus far in 2015. The one thing we can say for sure is that it hasn’t been boring, with a constant stream of surprises and controversies keeping things interesting. Here is a look at the Mets’ five biggest surprises at this point in the 2015 season.
The Chargers moved up to take Gordon in the first round because of how bleak their depth chart looked at running back, so they're expecting big things from him as a rookie. Even if he's not a star, Gordon looks to be as close to a sure thing as you can get to be a capable NFL running back. It's likely that Gordon will get most of the carries out of the backfield for San Diego in 2015, giving him a shot to gain 1,000 yards as a rookie.
Coming out of the trade deadline, the New York Mets looked to be in great shape. They won 11 of their first 13 games immediately following the deadline and surged ahead of the Washington Nationals in the NL East standings. However, on the heels of getting swept by the Pittsburgh Pirates, another issue has reared its ugly head, and it’s the team’s bullpen, specifically middle relief. With the acquisition of Tyler Clippard prior to the deadline, the Mets solidified the back end of their bullpen.
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".
