BRADENTON (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - For years, Major League Baseball has been trying to find ways to speed up the game without changing too much or affecting how it is played.One of the new attempts to speed up the game this year will be a restriction on how many visits to the pitcher’s mound a team gets per game.Each team will get six visits to the mound. That includes managers, coaches, the catcher and any other position player.
BRADENTON, Fla. (KDKA) — With the departures of Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole, new faces have arrived in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Spring Training clubhouse. There’s Colin Moran who came over from the Houston Astros, with his red hair and bushy red beard. A growth that gives him an intimidating look in the batter’s box. “I hope so. I’ll roll with that if you think so,” says Moran. There is new dad, Corey Dickerson, who came over from the Tampa Bay Rays.
BRADENTON, Fla. (KDKA) — Like clockwork, the Pittsburgh Pirates have been coming to Bradenton, Florida, to restock their supply of talent for the long voyage to October baseball. On the field the stars of tomorrow do their best to impress the coaching staff, while the veterans of recent years look to rebound from last year’s disappointment. “You know, we are just not thinking about last year,” says Pirates’ right fielder Gregory Polanco.
The Pirates prepare for life without Cutch and Cole. But don’t look for forlorn looks of despair. Wait till you hear what Jordy Mercer and Ivan Nova have to say. Our first reports from Spring Training 2018 on KDKATV @ 5 & 6. https://t.co/FrFtnZwhn1
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".
