Over the last eight days, Dustin Pedroia has played fewer than 12 full innings at second base. In an effort to keep his sore left knee off the turf at Tropicana Field, he served only as the designated hitter there last weekend. He left in the fourth inning on Monday because he hit himself in the face with a foul ball, DH’d on Tuesday and left in the eighth inning because the Red Sox had a commanding lead on Wednesday.
On to Cincinnati could have been the Red Sox rallying cry on Wednesday night, after they dismantled the half-asleep Baltimore Orioles for a third straight game. There was little celebrating, even for Chris Sale, who became the 16th player in MLB history to record his 300th strikeout. There were a few laughs — how could there not be when one of the rookies was dressed for the road trip as a human banana with dreadlocks? — but the tone of the locker room remained stoic. On to Cincinnati, they went.
Major League Baseball brass is examining stronger protection for fans — with the players union even calling for extending nets all the way to foul poles — after a 105-mph foul ball struck a young girl in the face at Yankee Stadium Wednesday night. One team, the Cincinnati Reds — who the Red Sox are playing tonight — is already vowing to extend its netting by Opening Day 2018.
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".
