A few years ago before a Twins game, then-manager Ron Gardenhire and former Pioneer Press beat writer Gregg Wong crossed paths in the Target Field clubhouse. Maybe it was the Metrodome. Wong, then as now working as an official major league scorer, spied his onetime foil sitting in the manager’s office and instinctively hurled a barb his way. Gardenhire fired back. This went on for a while, each working off what the other had just given him, spitting out new lines on tacit command.
Minnesota Twins decision-makers seem unsure about what to do with their erstwhile closer, Glen Perkins, whose return from a 14-month-long shoulder rehabilitation was greeted with something considerably less than enthusiasm on Tuesday.
"I would like to think people who vote on those things are paying attention," Twins manager Paul Molitor said Sunday.Mauer's over-the-shoulder catch of a sixth-inning popup from Chris McCann in a 12-11 loss to the Tigers was one of ESPN's plays of the day on Saturday night, but he is routinely making difficult plays in his fourth season since moving from catcher to first base full time.His ultimate zone rating of 5.2 is tops in the American League among first basemen with 85 starts, and his...
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".
