The Dodgers and Yankees have had more Rookies of the Year than any other teams in baseball, and both added to their totals Monday night when Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger and Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge, each of whom broke his league's rookie home-run record this year, won the awards unanimously.
"Best Pitcher in Baseball" is not an official honorific. Still, it is a title that gets bandied about quite a bit. Clayton Kershaw has been the consensus Best Pitcher in Baseball for several years now and was described as such with regularity throughout the just-completed postseason. However, that consensus is starting to fragment in favor of the Nationals' Max Scherzer, who could win his second consecutive National League Cy Young Award on Wednesday.
The fires of the Hot Stove have been lit. To honor the occasion and provide readers with a guide to this offseason's free-agent market, I've assembled below my list of this fall's top free-agent hitters. In recognition of the fact that there is no perfect free agent on this year's market, I've listed the pros and cons for each player, along with his 2018 playing age (age as of June 30, 2018) and the team on which he might best fit. The best fits are not predictions but rather suggestions.
@PeteAbe@isaukers I thought the shadow at the far left of the photo was the LF. I realize now, I'm wrong. The player out of frame is the RF, playing deep. That's the LF in shallow LF. Every infielder is on the right side of 2B. 2B is in shallow RF: https://t.co/jTZLEIEFaw
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".
