In 2013, it was Yasiel Puig. Two years later, it was Joc Pederson. Last season it was Cory Seager. And now it is Cody Bellinger. For the fourth time in the last five years, the Dodgers have added a rookie to the starting lineup who has moved in and taken over. Four years ago it was Puig. Called up in June when the Dodgers were struggling, he ignited the team with his sheer talent.
For those of you thinking the NBA Finals are over with the Golden State Warriors up 2-0 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, think back to a year ago. The Warriors got off to 2-0 lead then, also. Cleveland then won four of the next five games and walked away with the championship. (This is being written Wednesday morning, eight hours before game three starts.) That’s not saying the Cavaliers are about to stage another comeback.
LOS ANGELES — Here it is, June 1, and the Dodgers are back in front of the National League West. Good luck, Colorado and Arizona in keeping up with them. The Dodgers struggled through most of the first two months of the season, just like they always do. Two weeks ago they were 22-18. But after winning 11 of their last 13 games, the Dodgers have climbed past the Rockies and Diamondbacks and are leading the National League West for the first time since April 6.
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".
