With Ronald Acuna, perhaps baseball’s best prospect, seen as primed to make the leap sometime in 2018, the Atlanta Braves are expected to shop at least one of two veteran outfielders — Nick Markakis or Matt Kemp – or quite possibly both of them, as Mark Bowman of MLB.com first suggested. The Braves see Markakis as a fair value at $10.5 million for 2018, so they wouldn’t look to pay down much or any of his contract, depending on the return.
The Cleveland Indians will try to bring back Carlos Santana, who has enhanced his free agency by hitting .309 with a 1.015 OPS since the All-Star break. It’s “just a matter of finances,” says someone close to the situation. Santana is believed to like the idea of a return, if at all possible, too, though there have been no offers this year, according to people familiar with their talks. Of course, why would the Indians want to change a thing?
It was only a few weeks ago that Sports Illustrated posed this question of the Los Angeles Dodgers: “Best. Team. Ever?” While the punctuation, or at least the use of periods, was suspect on that cover, fortunately, as their people point out, they included a question mark at the end of those words/sentences. However, if they were to pose that query today. It might read another way. Or at the very least, “Weirdest team ever?”No team at their former heights ever sunk to these amazing depths so fast.
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".
