BUFFALO, N.Y. – Like many players on July 31, Teoscar Hernandez’s attention was divided between his game that night in Omaha and the looming non-waiver trade deadline. The 24-year-old outfielder was four months into a fine season with the triple-A Fresno Grizzlies, and even though his path to the big-leagues was blocked by a stacked Houston Astros roster, he was following the news out of curiosity. He’d given very little thought to the possibility of a trade.
CHICAGO – The clock on Aaron Sanchez returning this season as a starter has pretty much run out. A throwing session Saturday that “felt the most normal in terms of everything put together” is promising for the Toronto Blue Jays right-hander, but with six weeks remaining in the big-league campaign, and the minor-league season ending on Labour Day, safely building up to rejoin the rotation isn’t really possible.
CHICAGO – Wrigley Field always held a special appeal for Pat Tabler as he was growing up in Cincinnati, particularly on the rare occasions when he’d get to watch his beloved Reds on TV against the Chicago Cubs. Between the ivy, the constant day games and the bleacher bums, there was a mystique to the old yard on 1060 West Addison St. that other parks simply couldn’t offer.
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".
