In the new physics of baseball, it’s apparently OK to swing at the high ones. And the low ones. And the way outside ones. Swing hard. Swing often. A strikeout is just another out. A Scooter Gennett is a record maker. In baseball’s new physics, Exit Velocity times Max Fastball equals Look Out Section 413. As of Saturday morning, 2,812 home runs had been hit in the major leagues this season, a pace that would shatter the record 5,693 of the steroids-enhanced 2000 season.
Coach Rick Carlisle called it “a historic night for us,” and it probably was. Not that Carlisle and the Dallas Mavericks shook the NBA Draft on Thursday with their first-round selection of point guard Dennis Smith. What made history, of sorts, was that the Mavericks felt compelled to hold onto their No. 9 overall draft pick, instead of trading him for three beans along with the family cow. Few NBA franchises had heretofore exhibited such little ardor for the annual draft than the Mavericks.
They used to call it Revis Island, a place where so many good pass receivers were banished into Sunday exile. But last year Darrelle Revis’ private little island became an NFL vacation destination. Once considered a certain future Hall of Fame cornerback, Revis is now a 32-year-old with allegedly declining skills and no NFL team to play for. Unless ... Unless the Dallas Cowboys’ Dez Bryant has his way. Dez has put out the word on Twitter that Revis and the Cowboys would make a favorable fit. “Dallas?
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".
