The San Francisco Giants have been an anomaly during this slow offseason, in that they’ve actually participated in some wheeling and dealing while the rest of baseball sits on their hands. After a dreadful 98 loss season, the team has shown no signs of throwing in the towel by acquiring former All-Stars like Andrew McCutchen and Evan Longoria.
After one of the worst seasons in franchise history, the San Francisco Giants find themselves at a crossroads. Do they follow the lead of the Houston Astros and blow up their roster to (hopefully) make another World Series run in five years? Or do they try to squeeze out one more championship while their core players are still in their prime? All signs seem to indicate the latter, which means the Giants have a lot of work ahead of them to compete in 2018.
Breaking news: the San Francisco Giants can’t hit home runs. Shocking, I know. They ranked dead last in home runs during the most prolific power year in MLB history, hitting 23 less the the 29th ranked Pittsburgh Pirates. Yes, they did win three World Series titles without much power to speak of, but the game has changed. Plus the pitching staff is no longer historically great and can’t make up for the power deficiency.
20 years ago today, The Big Lebowski was released in theaters. About 13 years ago, I watched it for the 1st time and my life has never been the same. Thanks Dude for takin’ it easy for all us sinners. https://t.co/P0j4xzU3KZ
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".
