Much has been written in this space over the past few months about a slow-moving free-agent market, so without regurgitating the conspiracy theories about why so many players still remain unsigned less than three weeks before pitchers and catchers report to spring training for most teams, the Orioles enter an important part of their offseason this week. It’s just three days until the team hosts its annual offseason event, and the focus is supposed to be on drumming up excitement about the season.
After breaking big league spring training camp in Sarasota, the Orioles will play an exhibition game against their Triple-A minor-league affiliate Norfolk Tides on March 26 at Norfolk’s Harbor Park. Ending their exhibition slate in Norfolk has become a regular affair for the Orioles in recent years. This will mark the second straight year and fourth time in seven seasons that the Orioles’ exhibition slate will include a trip to Norfolk.
The Orioles will be bringing back a pair of familiar faces in their most-recent round of minor league signings that were announced Friday. The club announced that right-hander Eddie Gamboa, catcher Audry Perez, shortstop Anderson Feliz and outfielder D’Arby Myers. Gamboa, a former Orioles farmhand who transitioned to becoming a knuckleballer before the 2013 season, was with three organizations following after he left the organization following the 2015 season.
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".
