Tickets for Cubs playoff games will range from $71 for the National League Division Series to $481 for a World Series game, the Cubs announced Wednesday in a letter to season ticket holders. Single game tickets that are not part of a season ticket play will have different pricing. "There is really nothing like fall baseball at the Friendly Confines," Colin Faulkner, senior vice president of sales and marketing wrote in the letter. Season ticket holders have until Aug. 30 to pay for the tickets.
Kordell Stewart, who knows a thing or two about quarterback controversies, has a low opinion of how the Bears are cultivating that position. "This organization has ... done a horrible job at the quarterback position when it comes ... to how they go about grabbing players in free agency with Mike Glennon, with that $45 million deal they've given him," the former Bears QB said Tuesday on "NFL No Huddle" that airs on NFL-TuneIn.
The Cubs Sunday traded Jeimer Candelario and Isaac Paredes to Tigers for catcher Alex Avila and left-handed reliever Justin Wilson. Here's what you need to know about these two new Cubs. 1. Wilson has never had a hit in the majors. In six at bats over his six seasons, he struck out each time. 2. Wilson relies mainly on his fourseam fastball (up to 97 mph) and his cutter (92 mph). He's mix in a slider once in a while.
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".
