Yes, it's less than a month until pitchers and catchers will report to Spring Training, and 30 clubs will start revving up for what they hope will be a memorable championship run in 2018. The week ahead in baseball begins with an already-established Major League milestone, and it's one that makes any seamhead smile.

As we move into the second week ahead of 2018, maybe there's more time for the 30 clubs of Major League Baseball to get things going on the Hot Stove, which hasn't yet reached its typically frothy midwinter boil. The holidays are over. The New Year has arrived. Pitchers and catchers report to their Spring Training camps in just over a month. The holidays are over. The New Year has arrived.

The list of baseball players who reignited their careers in Asia and came back to the Major Leagues continues to grow, and more and more teams are heading east to find diamonds in the rough. Eric Thames found a way to just be his slugging self. Tony Barnette found his niche as a late-inning reliever. Colby Lewis found leadership and a plan. Miles Mikolas found rhythm and durability as a starter. Mikolas' wife even found a burgeoning career as a television star.
So @JeffFletcherOCR actually has a HOF vote and actually did vote for the same 10 players I would have voted for if I had a vote (which I don’t). You can now direct all criticism and Twitter angst at @JeffFletcherOCR. Thank you.
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".
