The Minnesota Twins are now at .500, having lost six of their last 10. The bubble is bursting. There’s nowhere to go but down. It was fun while it lasted. Aside from Ervin Santana, Eddie Rosario might be the face of the Twins’ miraculous first half. The 25-year-old left fielder is having a career-year, smacking 11 home runs and generating a 115 wRC+ in 327 plate appearances. Should those paces hold, it will represent Rosario’s finest offensive campaign since he arrived in the majors in 2015.
Adam Wainwright threw a good game for the St. Louis Cardinals just before the All-Star break. On that early July Saturday against the New York Mets, he fanned seven while giving up only one walk and five hits over 6 2/3 innings. The only real blemish on the day was the home run he surrendered to Jay Bruce. Wainwright was a burned-out husk in his first start after returning from the break.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are in a weird spot. There’s still a good collection of players on the roster: Gerrit Cole, Francisco Cervelli, Josh Harrison, Felipe Rivero, and their three star outfielders. They’re hovering around .500 with a week until the non-waiver trade deadline. If you squint hard, you might say they are still in the playoff hunt. In truth, they’re out of it. The Brewers, Cubs, Rockies, and Diamondbacks are just too far ahead of them at this point, to say nothing of the Cardinals.
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".
