Mark Znidar The Columbus Dispatch @MarkZnidar There was the usual jibber-jabber in the media about how raw rookie Yandy Diaz would handle the pressure and expectations when he broke spring training as the Cleveland Indians starting third baseman, at least until second baseman Jason Kipnis returned from the disabled list and Jose Ramirez reclaimed his spot at third.For Diaz, though, real pressure was being caught twice by police trying to defect from his native Cuba on a homemade raft and...
Mark Znidar The Columbus Dispatch @MarkZnidar
It was the week of the 2008 state tournament, and Canal Winchester baseball coach Jason Vest pointed to a tall, lean sophomore playing catch before practice in a uniform that looked one size too large. Baby-faced Drew Dosch, he said, had the makeup and skill to play beyond high school and maybe even college.
Mark Znidar The Columbus Dispatch @MarkZnidar Evan White was never so disappointed in his life as when the University of Kentucky was swept in a best two-of-three series by rival Louisville in an NCAA super regional Saturday.Flash forward two days and White, a first baseman from Gahanna, was never more excited after the Seattle Mariners made him the 17th pick of the first round Monday night in the Major League Baseball draft.The slotting signing bonus for the 17th pick is $3.3 million.“It...
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".
