"I didn't know that," said a smiling Verlander, during a conversation at Fenway Park, ahead of Saturday's showdown with Chris Sale. "I'm getting old, man." "When it comes down to time -- you're talking 10 years -- you end up remembering the poster-board picture," Verlander said. "I remember Magglio [Ordonez] catching [the final out]. I wanted to wait until Magglio caught it, but Pudge [Rodriguez] was on top of me already. I remember him not letting me go. "I was jumping up and down.
Chad Bettis, who led the Rockies with 14 wins last year, is on the disabled list while undergoing chemotherapy for testicular cancer. Jon Gray, who led the staff in strikeouts last year, is out for at least the next month with a stress fracture in his left foot. Carlos Gonzalez is batting .175 and left Wednesday's game after being hit on the right hand by a Clayton Kershaw pitch. Gonzalez's hand is bruised, but preliminary X-rays were negative.
Braun, 33, is a good fit for the Dodgers' archrival, too: The Giants have the Majors' worst production -- a .201 OPS -- in left field, where Braun plays every day for the Brewers, who blanked Toronto, 2-0, on Wednesday night. By the terms of Braun's no-trade clause, the Dodgers are one of six teams that can acquire him without his permission.
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".
