Hunter Renfroe doesn't belong in the Pacific Coast League. If he didn't prove as much as the circuit's MVP a year ago, a two-week sampling after a surprising yet deserved demotion reiterated that fact. Renfroe had hits in more than half his regular season at-bats with Triple-A El Paso. Nearly half of those went for extra bases and four left the yard. After 14 games, Renfroe's ridiculous .509/.557/.891 batting line had produced 18 RBIs.
By virtue of the six-year, $83 million extension inked in January, Wil Myers is the first baseman of today, tomorrow and the not-too-distant future. While the jury is certainly still out on the pact with the Padres’ 2016 All-Star – he’s got a .759 OPS in 902 plate appearances since last year’s All-Star break – Myers is at the very least providing stability while the Padre develop their youngest position groups.
The Padres enter today’s game one win shy of the 68 victories amassed in Andy Green’s rookie season a year ago in large part because of the second-year manager’s faith in his bullpen – and in Craig Stammen, in particular. Sure, Hunter Renfroe jumped on a first-inning fastball for a three-run homer that provided just enough support for Luis Perdomo.
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".
