Since naming Jerry Dipoto their new general manager in September 2015, no team has made more trades than the Seattle Mariners. Dipoto completed 46 -- 46! -- trades from Oct. 1, 2015 through Nov. 1, 2017, far and away the most in baseball. Trader Jerry is always busy. The Mariners missed the postseason again this year, extending baseball's longest postseason drought to 16 seasons. Seattle hasn't been to the postseason since Ichiro Suzuki's rookie year in 2001.
Come Monday, we will finally find out whether Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani will come over to MLB this offseason. The Nippon Ham Fighters want to post him, but MLB and NPB are in the middle of a posting dispute with the MLBPA. The MLBPA set a Monday deal to resolve things, otherwise Ohtani is heading back to Japan for the 2018 season. Ohtani, 23, is arguably the best hitter and pitcher in Japan, and it has long been speculated he will want to do both in MLB. Now we have confirmation.
At some point this offseason, Japanese two-way star Shohei Ohtani will make the jump from Nippon Pro Baseball to Major League Baseball. His team, the Nippon Ham Fighters, have already announced they will post him for MLB clubs. Right now, there are two big questions surrounding Ohtani. One, when will he be posted? No one is quite sure because MLB and NPB are currently haggling with the MLBPA over the posting system.
@MattSnyderCBS@theiri Hey, if people think the MVP should be the guy who made more outs, didn't hit for as much power, wasn't as good defensively, and played for a team that would've made the postseason without him, more power to them.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
