The hard-throwing right-hander is free agent eligible next winter and wants to pitch for a contender. Samardzija’s ERA, though, is at a career high while his 4.41 strikeout-to-walk ratio is almost half what it was a year ago. Still, he’s a front-end starter who keeps the ball in the park (0.9 homers per nine innings). Chicago White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija is the hottest name in Blue Jays trade buzz.
Some things to know about the Chicago White Sox:The White Sox are the American League’s lowest-scoring team, averaging 3.7 runs per game. After Sunday’s loss against Minnesota, the team is 1-5 since winning six in a row and has not scored more than three runs in any of its previous seven games. Slugger Jose Abreu had his hitting streak halted at 17 games on the weekend. His average is up to .283 and he has six homers and 22 RBI.
White also had a second interception — a pick in the end zone, in the fourth quarter — that gave him his first, two interception game as an Argo. The win, keyed by another solid air and ground game from James Wilder Jr., and first half interceptions from Alden Darby and Mitchell White, gave the Argos certain momentum heading into the final third of the season.
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".
