All I can say is thank goodness for right-hander Andrew Cashner. Or this site might have to be renamed BaltimoreCrocheting.com or something equally less controversial, something that doesn’t get the emotions going, something that may not pay the bills. Let’s face it. This has not been a good winter/spring for the Orioles or, in particular, their fans. The team won 75 games last year and finished in last place.
So, as an Orioles’ fan, you were excited when Andrew Cashner made his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday and threw four scoreless innings. And you were relieved Monday when Dylan Bundy, after two poor exhibition starts, allowed just one run in five innings. And then you were angry about the state of the Orioles’ rotation Tuesday, when Chris Tillman made his Grapefruit League debut and walked six of the 14 guys he faced and was charged with four runs allowed in two-plus innings.
I had a chance to sit down with Orioles Executive Vice President Dan Duquette for an inning last week during an exhibition game at Ed Smith Stadium. We talked about his 2018 team, about what needs to happen for this club to get back to the postseason and about his own future, since his contract expires at the end of this season. Duquette has come a long way in dealing with the media since he came to Baltimore in 2012 after nearly a decade’s hiatus from Major League Baseball and the Boston media.
@quote27 Many fans wanted Orioles to re-sign Trumbo and were complaining about how the Orioles don't re-sign guys who do well. He re-signs to a reasonable deal, has a bad year, Mancini excels and now fans want to cut him & eat $26M w/o regard how that affects future signings. Ugggh.
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".
