Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is likely to join one of baseball’s most exclusive clubs in the next couple of weeks. He entered Monday’s action needing just 11 hits to reach 3,000 in his career, a milestone that should cement his eventual induction into the Hall of Fame. At this point, nobody can deny Beltre’s all-time greatness. For 20 major-league seasons, he has quietly combined prodigious power—he went into Monday with...
Joe Maddon couldn’t deny the awkwardness of the situation. Last week, he found himself in the dugout at Marlins Park managing the National League All-Stars, an honor he received by guiding the Chicago Cubs to a World Series title last year. But when he looked down the bench, he saw…none of the players who made that happen, a strange truth that Maddon admitted left him feeling “uncomfortable.” For the first time ever, nobody...
The Major League Baseball season will resume Friday after this week’s All-Star festivities, and the standings look…a little weird. Only 12 teams will enter the second half with a record of .500 or better, the fewest since 1999. For just the second time ever, two teams—the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros—are 30 games over .500 at the break. Three teams hold leads of at least 7 ½ games in their divisions at this point for just...
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".
