SPRINGFIELD, MO. - The St. Louis Cardinals organization, long known for its deep farm system and pitching strength, is weak on the left-handed side of the mound. But the organization’s top lefty prospect is slaying batters all over the Texas League. Austin Gomber, 23, was a fourth-round draft pick in 2014 from Florida Atlantic University. He has transitioned over 2017 from a pitcher with some issues into a dominant lefty nearing the ceiling of his potential at double-A Springfield.
A little more than two weeks ago, all of baseball was scratching it’s head when the St. Louis Cardinals opted to stand pat at the non-waiver trade deadline. It was an almost universal assumption that the team would move free agent-to-be Lance Lynn. With expectations that Lynn will command deal in the vicinity of a five year/$20 million deal, it’s tough to say whether the Cardinals would be willing to gamble on him for five more years.
The St. Louis Cardinals longest winning streak of the season came to a close Sunday afternoon, but there is plenty of reason to think this team still has fuel left in the tank. Through most of this season, the majority of the Cards numbers were buried in a sea of mediocrity, but since the All-Star break, the team finds its position looking better. Even before the streak, the Cardinals were beginning to see some offensive numbers slowly begin to normalize.
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".
