Here is our ranking of the top six rotations in the AL, with less than two weeks to opening day. The 2017 Jays battled a bracket-busting array of injuries and a lack of minor-league depth. Those were huge factors, and if healthy enough, they could be among the top six rotations this season. But the Jays were 12th in starter wins, 12th in WHIP, seventh in ERA and ninth in opponent OPS. That’s a long climb.
CLEARWATER, FLA.—It was spring training of 2006 when the talented but troubled Shea Hillenbrand went on the record to suggest that Blue Jays manager John Gibbons allowed a “country-club atmosphere” and not enough serious work was being done to prepare for the season. Whether true or not, that notion of unchallenging spring programs has followed him through two tenures as Jays manager.
CLEARWATER, FLA.—The Blue Jays lost for the seventh time in 10 decisions, 4-2 to the Phillies at Spectrum Field on Sunday. Left-hander Craig Breslow was the loser, allowing two runs in the seventh and recording just one out. Jason Leblebijian continued his impressive performance as a super utilityman with two hits and an RBI, raising his average to .316. Shortstop Lourdes Gurriel tripled and scored in the eighth.
Having observed so many sweet moments between Roy Halladay and his young sons back in the day I had to halt a conversation and turn away to regroup watching TV during and after as Braden pitched his inning for #CanadaJNT vs. #bluejays
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".
