After 2012 saw a trio of perfect games, there hasn’t been one in baseball since. Will that change this Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend? White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez is perfect through six innings against the Tigers, needing only 69 pitches to retire the first 18 Detroit batters in order. Gonzalez’s 2017 has hardly been dominant. His potential perfecto would likely go down in the air of Philip Humber’s 2012 gem than Felix Hernandez’s, the last perfect game in baseball.
The grades are in: Analysts seemed to like the Seahawks' 11 picks. Here's what they're saying. Sure, the Seahawks traded down again with their first pick. They went with a defensive lineman once they did pick rather than a cornerback or offensive lineman, as some were clamoring for. But the pick of Malik McDowell at No. 35 was widely praised in post-draft analysis. And, with the extra picks acquired from their three trades, Seattle addressed those positions of need.
It took Kelsey Plum less than a minute to score her first points as a professional after setting an NCAA women's all-time scoring record as a Washington Husky. OK, so these won’t count toward the WNBA all-time scoring title. They came in the San Antonio Stars’ first preseason game against the Dallas Wings, but Kelsey Plum is on the board. Professionally.
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".
