The Braves were finally punished by Major League Baseball for the scope of their breaking of international free agency rules, and it's a whole lot to take in at once. They lost 12 prospects, will be restricted in future signing periods in the short-term future, and are also going to lose out in the draft. John Coppolella, the former general manager whose resignation kicked off this entire process in public, was banned from MLB for life. And yet, these punishments still feel incomplete.
Shohei Ohtani wants to come to Major League Baseball in time for the 2018 season, but there is now a holdup in that quest. MLB's Players Union doesn't like the posting system, and wants an agreement to change it. According to Ken Rosenthal, however, their issue isn't with the current posting system, but instead the one that is set to replace this one. So, the MLBPA setup a deadline of 8 p.m.
We’ve gone from discussing whether Giancarlo Stanton will be traded to figuring out the teams that have a serious interest in him to finally hearing about trade offers. It’s been a long first few months of new ownership for the Marlins, but don’t worry, Derek Jeter still hasn’t said a word to Stanton about any of this. The Giants have made a formal offer, according to Ken Rosenthal, and word has even leaked out about which players are reportedly included.
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".
