MILWAUKEE – A day after social media backlash over comments he made to the Sun-Times, Cubs manager Joe Maddon tried to clarify the thoughts, saying he didn’t understand the full context of the question and was not criticizing LeBron James, Steph Curry or any other athletes engaged in Twitter battles with President Trump. “I’ve always spoken what’s on my mind, and I’ve always respected other people doing the same,” Maddon said Sunday. “It’s that simple.
John Lackey, perhaps the man of fewest words in the Cubs’ clubhouse, had a few for teammates before Thursday’s series opener in Milwaukee:Three 10-inning games and a pitching gem later, the Cubs had won three of four against the Brewers and headed to St. Louis looking for a National League Central clincher that could happen as soon as Tuesday. If anyone doubted it before this series, veteran Ben Zobrist made it clear after Sunday’s 5-0 victory at Miller Park.
MILWAUKEE – Don’t assume Jon Lester’s postseason pedigree and big-game reputation is a free pass to the front of the Cubs’ playoff rotation for a likely first-round matchup against the Nationals. The Cubs’ Opening Day starter has struggled in four starts since returning from lat tightness and shoulder fatigue last month. And without a return to his typical form in starts Monday and, presumably, Saturday, where he slots in October is anything but automatic. “It is a tough one,” Maddon said.
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".
