Sports Illustrated published its 2018 power poll on Tuesday because … why not? No trades of note have been made this off-season, and the same goes for free agent signings. Nonetheless, SI pulled out the tea leaves and deemed the World Series champion Houston Astros as next season's top team, followed by the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians.
Late in the 2010 season, his first of two as an aging infielder playing for the Chicago White Sox, the subject came up. Omar Vizquel was asked if he wanted to manage when his playing days ended. "I do," he said. "I think that's one of my goals after I retire. I want to apply all the knowledge that I have about the game. I think there are a lot of guys that play a lot of years in the big leagues that have the same feeling of wanting to have the final word to make a decision.
When the Chicago White Sox acquired Cuban outfielder Luis Robert in May, the $26 million signing bonus left them with little money to add more international players in the next two periods. With that in mind, the Sox on Thursday acquired minor-league pitcher Thyago Vieira from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for international signing bonus pool money. A hard-throwing reliever, Vieira appeared in 1 game for the Mariners last season, pitching a perfect inning of relief in his major-league debut.
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".
