The Red Sox have already filled one major need ahead of the MLB trade deadline as the acquired utility infielder Eduardo Nunez from the San Francisco Giants this week. Nunez will likely take over most of the third base duties for the Red Sox. “It’s exciting,” Nunez said, via ESPN. “You’re going to go [play] for a championship. That’s why we’re here.
The next championship Celtics team might not include Isaiah Thomas, but if it does expect the Celtics to have to trade away Al Horford at some point. The NBA salary cap madness that came in at a lower-than-expected $99 million burned the Celtics not only this off-season (Paul George might actually have happened if the number had come in higher), but it could haunt the C’s for several years to come.
If you want to voice your true opinions regarding the Red Sox these days, be prepared to be censored and/or potentially suspended. On the heels of the David Price – Dennis Eckersley feud that just won’t die, it appears that WEEI host Kirk Minihane was sent on an early vacation because of an anti-Red Sox ownership tirade on Monday. “They are the most pandering organization in America,” Minihane said of the Red Sox (WEEI has since removed the audio).
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".
