Confident. Intense. Driven. Competitive. Brutally honest. All of that and more can be said about St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tommy Pham. “That guy means business,” stated Luke Weaver. “There’s no other way to put it. The way he dresses, the way he talks, the way he walks, I mean, it’s Tommy Pham. I mean, Yadi’s the godfather, but Pham is gonna closely follow that down the road. He’s just a great guy to have around. He’s just a special guy and yeah, that’s contagious.
As per his usual custom, St. Louis Cardinals Chairman of the Board Bill DeWitt Jr. delivered some thoughts on the state of the team and fielded questions both on stage from fans and then during a media session. Free agency, trades, and winning were among the topics that came up. “Just a little preliminary, I think we had a nice offseason with the players we acquired,” began DeWitt. “Achieved most of our goals there. Always things to do with a club. If we can do more, we’ll do more.
The fact that he has yet to play in a Major League game, was left exposed for another Rule 5 draft, yet his autograph tickets sold out in advance for the St. Louis Cardinals Winter Warm-Up wasn’t lost on Patrick Wisdom. “I’m thankful for that,” he said. “The fans have been great to me. I do the best I can to show my gratitude and say hi to the kids. Anyone that stops to ask me, I always take the time to stop and say hi and chat because it goes a long way, I think.
@dagmrg740 That's a whole separate issue from Pham, though. Obviously, a lot from the front office has been said last few days. But I'm not convinced there won't be more moves as time goes along. Legitimately believe they are not okay w missing the post season again this year.
@dagmrg740 Who's trying to say he's Gibson or Carp? Not being snarky, but did you read the comments from Matt Carpenter? Pham's a lot more than a swag guy. No guarantees for what the numbers will look like in '18, but he earned his shot. And along the way, earned respect in the clubhouse
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".
