The offseason is still moving slower than molasses on a cold day, but a thaw could be near. On Sunday (or Monday in Japan), Yahoo Japan reported that the Milwaukee Brewers had made a contract offer to pitcher Yu Darvish. It was an interesting rumor, but it didn’t seem totally real until The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal confirmed that the Brewers had indeed offered Darvish a contract.
After the Philadelphia Eagles won the NFC title on Sunday, the entire city exploded in an exuberant celebration, complete with pole climbing, car surfing, and a dune buggy driving up the Art Museum steps. But there’s another side to this victory. Though it looked like Lincoln Financial Field was completely full of Eagles fans, there were Minnesota Vikings fans present.
Cameron Rupp, the backup catcher who recently signed a one-year, arbitration-avoiding contract with the Phillies, is not from Philadelphia. Or Pennsylvania. He is from Texas, and he’s a Dallas Cowboys fan. I’ll pause so you can vomit with the proper intensity. As you may have noticed by now, the Cowboys are not in the playoffs. They had laughably bad season, which brought me and many other Eagles fans an unbelievable amount of pleasure.
@holly_holl We had to go to bed in the middle of that episode so I dug up that lip sync to show to Sean, who has never seen this season. Manila is still gloriously demented, but I don't know how I forgot that Delta sang to her fucking bracelet.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
