On Wednesday night, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin benched centerfielder Odubel Herrera, again, for too much styling and not enough hustle, again. His infractions on Tuesday night against the Astros spurred the latest, hollow cries from fans and media to trade Herrera — who is, unquestionably, the team’s best player over the past three seasons — by the deadline Monday.
Veterans arrived at training camp Wednesday, their heads spinning with the results of the newest concussion study. The Journal of the American Medical Association on Tuesday published a study of the donated brains of 202 deceased players who played football during their lives. Of them, 119 made it to the NFL or CFL. Of that 119, all but two showed signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative disease now linked more closely than ever to the most violent of games.
The 24-year-old Phillies third baseman didn’t know what was wrong. He’d had a lot of early success but now, after more than 300 games, he couldn’t find his swing. He was coached and counseled. Pitchers pitched to his weaknesses, but he could not resist. He worked on this, he worked on that, but nothing worked. Then, suddenly, it clicked again … for Mike Schmidt. Maybe it’s clicking again for 24-year-old Maikel Franco. Maybe like Schmidt, who occasionally gives Franco advice, Franco is finding himself.
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".
