Ryan Braun has only three years remaining on his contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, but after the team’s surprising showing in 2017 he is optimistic about getting another shot at the playoffs before his career with the club ends. “It was a fun year, an exciting year,” said Braun, who continued his Thanksgiving tradition of helping the Brewers with their annual food drive at Miller Park on Wednesday. “We finished one game short of the postseason this year.
Today is the day major-league clubs must add eligible minor-league players to their 40-man roster to avoid exposing them to other teams in the Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings. The Milwaukee Brewers have five openings on their 40-man roster unless they remove a player or players to create extra space. Players who must be protected basically are high school draft picks and international signings from 2013 as well as college draft picks from 2014.
The Milwaukee Brewers announced their 2018 spring training schedule on Monday, which includes 33 exhibition games, including two at Minute Maid Park in Houston at the end of camp against the new World Series champion Astros. The Brewers will play split-squad games on their first day of action in the Cactus League on Friday, Feb. 23. They will play the defending NL Central champion Chicago Cubs at Maryvale Baseball Park and the San Francisco Giants at Scottsdale Stadium.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
