For today, let's put aside whether you think the Pirates are legitimate playoff contenders this season. Let's think beyond that and look at their farm system...which, at present, doesn't appear to be loaded with prospects. That being said, no matter how much he means to the Pirates now, and knowing that they probably won't re-sign him after 2018, is it best to trade Andrew McCutchen to begin re-stocking the Pirates organization?
Looking forward to talking about all the Penguins moves, since I didn't have the chance while I was away. Almost all were expected, but one in particular was surprising/disappointing. I want your thoughts, and we'll get the opinion of hockey writer Josh Yohe of DK Pittsburgh Sports at 12:30. To borrow a line from our favorite movie series, "Just when you thought they were out, they drag you back in".
Guy Junker fills in for Stan once again today. There are quite a few players who have won back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins who will be available on the free agent market once the period begins, and the team stands to lose most if not all of them. Who are they? Guy talks with Paul Steigerwald of the Penguins Radio Network at 12:30. Jameson Taillon pitched 6 1/3 innings of shutout baseball last night in the Pirates' 4-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.
@timwilliamsP2 Many people have NO idea whatsoever that would entail. Many teams have tried it, and failed. Even if you form your own network, you still have to get cable companies to carry your programming. What do you provide when there are no games on?
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".
