Albert Pujols posted a 28-105-.272 season in 2014, earning him $27 in Rotisserie dollars. That was enough to move him into the top 10 in lifetime earnings during the Rotisserie era (1980-present), according to just-released statistics at Shandler Park. Pujols has now earned $488 during his 14 years in the majors, ranking him ninth overall.
Back in 2000, Malcolm Gladwell wrote a book called "The Tipping Point." He described how a series of small events can build to a critical mass and reach a "tipping point" where great change can occur. He gave examples of societal changes, like fashion trends and drops in crime rate, that could be attributed to seemingly unrelated events. In baseball, we have experienced tipping points as well.
As fantasy leaguers, we constantly face psychological obstacles in building our rosters. Some of these are pretty blatant. For instance, if you get a dozen Mets fans into a room, you can be sure that David Wright will be bid up over $30—even though the third baseman has reached that level only twice in the last six years. Then there are those guys who are so hell-bent on drafting the obscure prospect who becomes the next Mike Trout that they completely undermine any chance of winning today.
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".
