With a meaningless Summer League MVP to add to his dad’s mantle, Lonzo Ball is now the next coming of Magic Johnson. Pundits and fans have been swinging like Tarzan from Lonzo’s nether regions already anointing him an All-Star, a dark horse MVP candidate or even the next guy to average a triple double a la Russell Westbrook. Yawn. I’m not buying into Lonzo Ball as any of those. What is the Summer League really?
It’s time for the Miami Marlins to trade Giancarlo Stanton. Yes, I said it. Trade Giancarlo Stanton. The most recognizable face on the team should be traded now while his value is high. The Miami Marlins should trade him because it’s the right thing to do both for him and the team. Moving his contract might make the selling of the team a bit easier as perhaps the new ownership doesn’t want to be saddled with that huge contract.
I don’t remember the first time I heard about Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS), but I do recall when I stopped paying attention to it. For a couple of years, I had been posting lineups for college basketball DFS and writing about it from time to time. Then, about two years ago, I tried to log in to FanDuel in order to put together a lineup and I was not allowed to. I had never played for money, but I could not even log in as a person living in Louisiana.
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".
