For the first time since these rivals initially met in 1888, the North Carolina Tar Heels and Duke Blue Devils will battle in September. With the good guys capturing their first win on the season last week and the bad guys undefeated on the year, this oddly-timed matchup will affect the trajectory of their seasons rather than the finality of determining season records and postseason destinations. It is a 3:30 kickoff tomorrow in Chapel Hill:Duke played spoiler last year in Durham.
For most of the season, it appeared as though Chris Sale was untouchable in the American League. The Boston Red Sox southpaw has led all major league starters in strikeout rate, and also carries a top-10 walk rate. He’s giving up less than a home run per nine innings, which, given that he pitches in the AL East in 2017, is a feat unto itself. He led all major league starters in Expected Weighted On-Base Average (xwOBA) and Deserved Run Average, too.
Mookie Betts is once again the Boston Red Sox’s best position player. He has played super-elite defense in right field and has been bested on the basepaths only by Billy Hamilton and Byron Buxton. He’s stayed healthy and hit at the top of the order all season, meaning that he’s accrued a ton of value simply by being there and producing. He is nominally the face of the franchise, as he has been since his mammoth breakout in 2016. He’s been on a tear for the last two weeks.
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".
