With two weeks remaining in the MLB season, it seemed like a good time to revisit the trade deadline winners and losers to see what, if any, impact the July wheeling and dealing had on the current post-season picture. Recall in 2015 the Blue Jays seemed like just another also-ran in the AL standings, sitting at a mediocre 50-51 on July 28 when GM Alex Anthopoulos pushed prospect chips to the middle of the table and declared himself all-in.
From the right side, the Jays will have effective and cost-effective options in Ryan Tepera, Dominic Leone, Danny Barnes and perhaps even Joe Biagini. None of those men have accumulated service time for arbitration. Other potential righties include the impressive Carlos Ramirez, with no earned runs at any level this year, and Luis Santos, who could fill the need for a long relief specialist.
The Blue Jays concluded the penultimate homestand of their season with a 2-1 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday, as Baltimore left-hander Zach Britton nailed down the save, unlike his outing the night before. The Jays now head out for a four-game series against the wild-card contending Minnesota Twins at Target Field. Yes, the wild-card contending Twins, as the Jays appear headed for last in the AL East. That is not a misprint.
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".
