The $217 million that the Boston Red Sox invested in David Price two winters ago has thus far paid for a goat. But all will be forgiven if he plays the hero in October. Even if he has to do it in an unusual role. Due to persistent problems with his left elbow, Price didn't make his 2017 debut until May 29 and hasn't pitched since July 22. But the former Cy Young winner is finally ready to return to the mound for the home stretch. The word on Thursday is that the Red Sox are happy to welcome him back.
The New York Yankees announced Friday they are donating $500,000 to support Hurricane Irma relief efforts in the southeastern United States. The donation includes $250,000 apiece to the Salvation Army and the Red Cross. "The destruction that was caused in the wake of Hurricane Irma will have a long-lasting impact on the lives of many," Yankees general partner Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal said.
Even amid the most extreme home run barrage in Major League Baseball history, Giancarlo Stanton looms like a titan over mere mortal men. It's time for Bleacher Report's MLB Metrics 101 to pay proper homage. The Miami Marlins right fielder already has 54 home runs. That's an astonishing number in and of itself, but it's also a gateway to a veritable treasure trove of other astonishing numbers. Let's go through that gateway.
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".
