Shohei Ohtani is transferring to an MLB team soon. Or should be. Probably. There’s a big hang up with that so far though, namely that there’s no posting system in place right now which means he can’t be posted which means he can’t sign to a team in the US! But Rob Manfred’s not too worried about all that. MLB already agreed with Ohtani’s Japanese league Nippon Professional Baseball about a posting system. Which seems like the most important piece of this whole puzzle is taken care of.
Most people have seen The Sandlot. Everybody pretty much loves The Sandlot right? It’s got all of the youthful nostalgia we need to revisit sometimes in 2017 without the dead body of The Goonies. On a base level, The Sandlot is good. Which means that a real life story, close in approximation to events that take place in the movie, is therefore also good, right? Sure. That’s how the internet works, so let’s roll with it.
The Marlins’ new ownership admitted to everyone in listening distance that they were planning to cut salary this offseason. Practically sang it from a mountaintop. And since Giancarlo Stanton’s contract is the size of one of the lesser Alps, cutting salary means trading their best player.
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".
