When Mets first baseman Dominic Smith got his first major league homer during the Subway Series, he said “it felt like it felt like 100 pounds was lifted off my shoulders.”Saturday night, Smith probably felt like a ton came off his shoulders. Not only did he get his first hit at Citi Field, but he made it a homer. “It felt good,” said Smith who ended an 0-for-11 streak at home with a solo shot leading off the eighth against Miami’s Javy Guerra in the Mets’ 8-1 victory over Miami on Saturday.
There are new faces liberally sprinkled among the more familiar ones on the Mets these days as salary dumps and rebuilding moves reign. And amid the comings and goings — including the goings of some important clubhouse guys — manager Terry Collins stresses one thing above all. These guys are ballplayers, paid to do their job. So do it. “We’ve got to get the attention back on the game and play the game right,” Collins said.
For the first time in four years, Nets wing Caris LeVert worked out in the summer to get better — not just healthy. “It was pretty discouraging,” LeVert admitted of the three previous summers when he rehabbed to overcome residual effects of foot fractures that led to three operations in 22 months. “I always tried to look at the finish line and times like now where I’m healthy. I knew I wouldn’t be injured the rest of my career.
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".
