CLEVELAND - Don't worry. Hitting savant Kyle Schwarber isn't Superman all down the line. In some respects, he's just like you and me. Take the private plane that winged him back to the Chicago Cubs on Monday night, his first trip back to the majors since the devastating knee injury back in early April.
CLEVELAND - You had LeBron James with a triple-double at the building next door. And you had Corey Kluber raising him at Progressive Field. King them. The out of town guys never had a chance. Not even if the Chicago Cubs waited 71 years for this night.
CHICAGO - All around this city, there is noise. Beautiful and joyful, chaotic and urgent. It is loud. It is majestic and inspiring, the din stretching all the way from Wrigleyville to Michigan Avenue and back, snaking through the neighborhoods, awakening babies, washing over grandmothers, rolling down the city streets and up the sidewalks, closing the bars and then opening them all over again.
CLEVELAND - Pinch us. The 112th World Series starts here on Tuesday night, and the Cleveland Indians will tangle with the Chicago Cubs? For reals? Next thing you'll try to tell us, there are telephones you can carry around that don't plug into the wall that also double as computers.
CHICAGO - So, 71 years later, this is what it looks like when the Chicago Cubs storm into the World Series.... Anthony Rizzo hitting everything Clayton Kershaw threw him on the screws, an RBI double, a long ball, a fly ball in the first inning that Los Angeles Dodgers left fielder Andrew Toles plumb dropped.
LOS ANGELES - Here they go again: The Los Angeles Dodgers, one loss away from clocking out for the final time in 2016, are handing the ball to Clayton Kershaw. Poor guy. Already, he missed two-and-a-half months this summer with a herniated disk in his back. And this keeps coming up.
LOS ANGELES - It was that moment when you're creeping along through gridlock and, suddenly, the freeway opens clear up. Addison Russell re-introduced himself to this NL Championship Series by walloping a home run, Anthony Rizzo reminded folks that he hasn't gone anywhere by crushing another, and pretty soon all that was left in view was the taillights of the Chicago Cubs.
LOS ANGELES - By the end of it, a dominant season suddenly fragile, harrowing memories from last October gnawing at their fringes, this is what the toothless Chicago Cubs were reduced to: Ninth inning, Anthony Rizzo hacks at a Kenley Jansen cutter and his bat explodes into three pieces.
CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs led the league this year in, among other things, wins, winning percentage, run differential and multitasking. Yes, that's right. Multitasking. You feel pretty accomplished when you knock off three things at once?
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
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".
