PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed their bullpen ace Felipe Rivero to a long-term contract. The 26 year old lefthander is guaranteed $22 million over the next four seasons. Club options in 2022 and 2023 are $10 million each. To say Rivero is excited might be an understatement. Rivero, whose sister Prescilla helped negotiate the deal, said he stayed out of the talks. “It’s not about the money,” Rivero told reporters Thursday. “It’s not about getting more.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Even with an offense filled with stars, the Pittsburgh Steelers struggled to score touchdowns over the first half of the season. The low point came in a 30-9 loss to Jacksonville in week five, when three field goals accounted for the scoring. Heading into Sunday’s playoff game at Heinz Field, offensive coordinator Todd Haley believes that day — in which Ben Roethlisberger was intercepted five times — was a turning point.
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Thursday was Todd Haley’s turn to talk about the excruciating final half minute of the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the New England Patriots. The team’s offensive coordinator said that after Jesse James’ go-ahead touchdown was overruled by video replay, the second down play from the 10 yard line led to things going awry. Darrius Heyward-Bey was tackled after catching Ben Roethlisberger’s pass, and the clock continued to run.
Coonelly also told @KDKARadio he's upset that @Pirates fans frustration and anger has turned into personal attacks on Bob Nutting. He said the decision to trade McCutchen was made by the baseball operations team and Nutting was 'the last one to get on board."
@Pirates president Frank Coonelly told @KDKARadio he wants the fans to know that the decision to trade Andrew McCutchen "was made for all the right reasons and it was made in order to build a winner for them (the fans)"
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".
