Dallas Keuchel knows the Astros' minor league schedule a little too well right now. The Astros ace will throw his second rehab assignment on Saturday in a to-be-determined location. After throwing a bullpen session on Wednesday - the day his Astros fell 4-1 to the Mariners at Minute Maid Park - Keuchel stood at his locker and rattled off the teams and their upcoming games. "Corpus is in Midland, Fresno is in Vegas," he said.
On Friday when Chris Paul was introduced to Houston while thousands of Rockets fans piled into the Toyota Center ready to welcome their newest star. He went back to the building Saturday morning to support James Harden, who spoke in depth for the first time since signing the richest contract extension in NBA history. He sat in the front row both days, dressed casually, smiling when the Rockets two super stars spoke of their goals, their expectations, their futures with the team.
Who saw this coming? On Monday - just days after the Rockets threw a party to welcome Chris Paul then showcased James Harden in a heartfelt press conference - owner Leslie Alexander put the team up for sale. Alexander bought the Rockets in 1993 and has had a successful run with the franchise. The timing is shocking as Alexander sat in the front row while Paul made his first appearance in Houston and the next day as Harden sung the praises of the owner, CEO Tad Brown and general manager Daryl Morey.
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".
