The three-year, $60 million contract that Cleveland gave Edwin Encarnacion looked like a steal from the moment it was signed. After all, Encarnacion and his agent reportedly sought $100 million in their first round of negotiations with the Toronto Blue Jays , and Edwing's price dropped severely after the Jays made him a take-it-or-leave-it offer that ended as leave-it-and-go-sign-the-poor-man's-version-of-Encarnacion instead.
When trying to explain the Toronto Blue Jays’ disappointing 35-36 season to date, you can point to many culprits. Injuries have wreaked havoc on the roster. Jose Bautista has fallen well short of expectations. They’re 0-90,000,000,000,000 in games in which they’ve tried to claw back to .500. Still, no Jays no player has missed career AND recent norms in 2017 more than Troy Tulowitzki. (Jose Bautista might be further behind career norms, but we expect a lesser version of Bautista after last year).
The NFL recently announced it will allow group celebrations and prop celebrations after touchdowns, moving half a step closer to become a league that almost kind of tolerates fun! In honor of this sort of momentous occasion, we're trotting out the best sports celebrations of all time -- or at least the ones we can think of, after many emails exchanged with CBS Sports staffers. Also, huge hat-tip to Sagar Jay Patel (@timoperezzz), who suggested the idea of ranking celebrations.
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".
