Jake Thompson entered last season as the top pitching prospect in the Phillies’ system and a key piece of the trade that sent Cole Hamels to Texas. He arrived Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park as almost an afterthought, an extra arm for a worn bullpen. The last 16 months have been a challenge. “It’s definitely been a good learning experience for me. This is the first time in my career that I’ve really struggled for the better part of a season,” said Thompson, who has a 5.36 ERA in 18 starts at triple A.
The Phillies have too many outfielders, which is not really a problem because one can never have too many outfielders. It is, for now, a temporary dilemma. The team hopes to rectify the situation within the next week by trading Howie Kendrick, but Kendrick is still a member of the Phillies, so they have no need to rush Aaron Altherr’s return to the active roster. Altherr originally was projected by the team to miss 10 days.
Because of his profession as a wrestler, AJ Styles has traveled the world over, but every time he steps foot in Philadelphia, fond memories of his career rush back into his mind. One memory in particular takes him back to a time before fans called him the “Phenomenal One.”It takes him back to the Murphy Recreational Center on April 27, 2002 when he faced Low-Ki at Ring of Honor’s third-ever event, Night of Appreciation.
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".
