CINCINNATI — Now that Scooter Gennett is an every day player for the Cincinnati Reds, what might his future be? His contract expires after this season. Either the Reds sign him to a multi-year deal or he can become a free agent and peddle himself to the highest bidder. Every team needs a Scooter on its roster. So far the Reds have made no move on Gennett, not even talked to him about where he stands for 2018 and beyond.

Q: Do you approve if I never wear my Homer Bailey jersey again until it is stamped with pre-Tommy John surgery? DAVE, Miamisburg/Centerville/Beavercreek. A: I am not the fashion/garb police.

It was about 2 a.m. Thursday morning when Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin was awakened in his hotel room by a phone call. “You’re pitching today,” said Corbin’s manager, Torey Lovullo. Taijuan Walker, the scheduled starter, left town on maternity leave when his wife went into labor. With a 1-and-6 road record this year, the left handed Corbin was not the ideal choice. But he was Thursday against the Cincinnati Reds.
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".
