The White Sox are in last place with the no hope of making the postseason. But that doesn’t seem to be bothering the fan base much. Especially since general manager Rick Hahn has kept the team relevant with four blockbuster trades since December. 24,907 showed up Wednesday night to see Yoan Moncada’s debut with the Sox. “I can feel the excitement,” Moncada said. It turned into an impromptu promotional night for the Sox after the arrival of baseball’s top prospect.
Clayton Kershaw may have been pitching in the series opener between the White Sox and Dodgers, but it was #hugwatch that was trending on Twitter Tuesday night. Yes, #hugwatch was trending. After Todd Frazier was listed as a healthy scratch the obvious assumption was that a trade was coming. So we waited and waited, staring at the Sox dugout looking for hugs.
You’re stunned. I get it. Many are. The Cubs and White Sox did what?! But let’s take a step back and bring some perspective to this deal. Jose Quintana to the Cubs has made almost too much sense ever since the Sox entered rebuild mode. Once the trade was announced the baseball world was shocked. Not just because it was a trade between the crosstown rivals, but because it was a blockbuster deal involving one of the best pitchers in baseball and one of the top-rated prospects in the game.
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".
