PHILADELPHIA — Pat Neshek was the one Phillie everybody expected to depart before the July 31 trade deadline.Late on Wednesday night, that chip was sent packing.Neshek, the 36-year-old reliever who has been the Phils' brightest pitching spot of this lost season, was traded to the Colorado Rockies for three minor league prospects. Those prospects were 20-year-old shortstop Jose Gomez, 20-year-old right-handed starting pitcher Alejandro Requena and 23-year-old right-handed pitcher J.D.
PHILADELPHIA — Odubel Herrera gathered his belongings as the deep media crowd encircled his locker. As he answered questions about his meeting Wednesday afternoon with Pete Mackanin — yet another time that the Phillies' center fielder had been effectively summoned to the principals office — he kept one eye on the clock so he wouldn’t end up being late for his pregame stretch.“I imagine that he calls me into the office to give advice, advice that I need, obviously,” Herrera said.
PHILADELPHIA — The Phillies have only had Howie Kendrick available for 39 of their 99 games this season.However, the next five games were supposed to be really critical for the Phils to get anything for him in a potential pre-July 31 deal.So it is perhaps fitting the weekend of the trade deadline would arrive with serious concerns about the health of the 34-year-old super-utility man.
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".
