If there were such thing as a Major League Baseball Stock Exchange, the Diamondbacks' value would be falling while other teams in the National League seem to be on the rise.But is it time to hit the panic button? No, I don’t think so.Have the D-backs hit a rough patch? Sure. It happens. It’s a 162-game season for a reason (accidental rhyme time… Whoops, did it again). Much like a marathon runner, you judge their performance as whole. Who cares if Mile 19 was a little sluggish?
When he was a rookie, Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta and his teammates would often go out to enjoy steak dinners that included premium bottles of wine.The experience awoke a passion for wine within Iannetta, and it led to the creation of JACK Winery, a business he and former Los Angeles Angels teammate Vernon Wells founded five years ago.
The Diamondbacks have quite the closer conundrum on their hands. It wasn’t just that Fernando Rodney blew a save against the Dodgers on Thursday night -- it was the way he did it. He threw 20 pitches, and only six were strikes. These were hardly tough pitches to lay off. I heard Bob Uecker’s famous just a bit outside call in my head on several occasions. Rodney walked three straight batters and gave up a 3-run lead without recording a single out.
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".
