Hope is a mirage in most NBA cities. In Phoenix, it’s a hashtag. We are now home of #TheTimeline. The catchphrase has gone viral, unifying Suns fans during an unprecedented playoff drought. It’s based on the growing optimism that General Manager Ryan McDonough can draft his way to an NBA title, where 20/20 vision will deliver a title contender in the 2020 season. Do you believe? Can you wait? Does it matter? The Suns don’t have a choice. They don’t have a playoff team.
One more chance. One more blown save. That’s all Fernando Rodney gets before he loses his job as closer. After a horrific meltdown in Los Angeles, many Valley fans want Rodney shipped out of town. That’s understandable. The crushing nature of Thursday’s loss to the Dodgers was one of the most painful defeats in recent memory. The last time Rodney blew consecutive save opportunities, he responded with a brilliant month of relief pitching.
Hosting a playoff game in a major professional sport can do wonders for a city, lifting the collective mood and heightening the sense of civic esteem. This is especially true in Phoenix, which hasn’t staged such an event since October 2011. But there’s something far more important to the Diamondbacks than bringing October baseball back to Chase Field in 2017. After losing the first two games in a showdown series against the Dodgers, this is a major dilemma for the new regime in Arizona.
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".
