FORT MYERS, Fla. — Jason Varitek has been taking an active role with the Red Sox catchers since camp opened last week. The same is true of Pedro Martinez with the pitchers and Dwight Evans with the outfielders. On Sunday, Derek Lowe stopped by Fenway South to work with Rick Porcello on throwing his sinker. It was a product of the conversation they had last month at the team’s Winter Weekend event. A group of fans cheered when Lowe made his way to the bullpen.
SUNDAY’S WEATHER: Not that New Englanders want to hear this, but it’s been so warm that manager Alex Cora has been worried about keeping the players on the field too long. It was sunny and 85 on Sunday. FUNDAMENTALLY SPEAKING: It was another day of live batting practice. Matt Barnes, Heath Hembree, Joe Kelly, and Carson Smith were among those on the mound. PLAYER OF THE DAY: Nonroster righthander Marcus Walden was throwing strikes and working at a good pace.
MIAMI — Step into the principal’s office at Epiphany School in Miami, and you’ll think you’ve entered a shrine for the Philadelphia Eagles. And you’ll be right — as you scan the banners, blanket, desk, chair and other items, you’ll see they’re all in the green and silver hues of the pro football team. But Sister Margaret Fagan got the crown jewel for fans on Jan. 26: a ticket to Super Bowl LII Feb. 4, when the team will face the New England Patriots in Minneapolis.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
