David Price doesn’t like Dennis Eckersley and the Red Sox ace let the Hall of Fame pitcher know about it. Details emerged of the “verbal confrontation” the two had on a Red Sox team charter plane on June 29. According to the Boston Globe, Price took exception to learning Eckersley, part of NESN’s broadcast team, muttered “yuck” when reliever Eduardo Rodriguez’s stats were shown on the television.
The saga of No. 21 continues. Todd Frazier revealed before Thursday’s game against the Mariners that he will continue to wear No. 29 with the Yankees despite expressing interest to wear No. 21 in honor of his childhood hero, Paul O'Neill. The Bombers’ new third baseman, acquired in a trade from the White Sox on Tuesday, said he wanted to reach out to O’Neill for his permission to wear No. 21--despite it not being retired--but apparently the two never spoke, so he is sticking with No. 29.
Something is up with the Noah Syndergaard as Thor Bobblehead. The Mets are giving away the figurine to the first 15,000 fans for Saturday’s game and as images of the bobblehead surfaced on social media Wednesday, some noticed something peculiar about the handle of the Norse god’s hammer. It is quite phallic-shaped. In fact, you'd think it'd be sitting in Kevin Plawecki’s locker with the way it looks.
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".
