Signing a 30-year-old halfback isn’t going to excite a fanbase. But considering what Jonathan Stewart can provide for the New York Giants, he’s a shrewd gamble to take. Tuesday afternoon, the Giants agreed on a two-year, $6.9 million deal to bring Stewart to East Rutherford. They announced the signing via Twitter Tuesday night. At first glance, adding a 30-year old running back who doesn’t have the greatest track record when it comes to his health sounds like a bad idea.
With the addition of prized left tackle Nate Solder, three-year lineman Ereck Flowers will be manning a new role in 2018. And the New York Giants are taking the right steps in having the 2015 first-rounder compete to be the starting right tackle. Last season, Flowers was slightly better than he was in 2016, but as a whole, he still struggled to protect Eli Manning‘s blindside.
The Houston Astros, New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, and Boston Red Sox are expected to duel it out in the American League playoffs. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, and Washington Nationals are expected to do the same in the National League. But who’s to say those teams are definitely the ones doing so in October when, in fact, there are many ballclubs who possess the firepower to make a playoff push too?
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".
