"And this is the Cincinnati Reds pregame show presented by your Cincinnati Northern Kentucky. Honda dealers. I'm Dave are Brewster Despite the loss last night, it was a big night for Joey Votto, who collected career R B number 1000. And he did it by hitting a home run in the bottom of the third. He met with the media earlier today and was asked if he remembered R B I number one. Mm, First one was the home run off of John Mayne. In my rookie year. And seven or my, my initial call up. And, um, that was cool. You know, I was I was in a kind of a grumpy frame of mind because I felt like I should have been in the league years before that, you know, I remember as an 18 year old in the Gulf Coast League. Um Hitting well and like Starting to figure out how to hit professionally and one of the coaches. Bobby Williams. Say, What are your goals and I said to be in the major leagues next year, and he was like No, seriously. What are your goals and in my head? I was like Oh, no, dude, I really I'll figure this out really quickly. Um, obviously, that didn't happen, but not terribly long. After that. I felt like I was ready offensively. And, um, you know, at first base defensively, I was fine. I had a reputation for not being, um, very good. But my early career numbers showed otherwise. I was I was a good defender, Um So I was grumpy when I first came up, so I wasn't in a very good mood When I, uh got to my first start by. It was like it's about darn time so And now I'm just I'm very happy to be here. Joey, If you're just looking at your number's the home run milestone this year in the RV milestone, it puts you up there with reds, who are in the Hall of Fame, the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Do you ever allow yourself to think about that? What that might be like if that could happen for you of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. I spend most of my time thinking about I I mean, Whether I'm making a minimum or or or a big number, salary wise, I've spent all my time thinking about or most of my time thinking about How can I be competitive? As long as I have an opportunity to to play and so I would really like, you know, I was. I've been very fortunate to see some Clearly, excellent players play well to the very, very ended their career. Um Where they opted not to play anymore. You know, I'm talking about Adrian Beltre talking about Torii Hunter I'm talking about, Um, you know, David Ortiz. These are players that decided, you know. Chipper Jones. I've had enough. Derek Jeter. That's good, you know? And, um Those are the those are the players. I admire the most. Because I know that one day I won't be good enough to play baseball anymore. But As long as I have an opportunity to I want to keep fighting and I look up to those players, among others. And try to emulate that, and that's what gives me the greatest. Um, joy, and that is my current challenge. Some.

"And he just found it out, you know, from the trickle down Rough. The parlor CEO says the platform will come back strong with changes to keep user safe while respecting free speech. S O will see. But the parlor board, I guess that's controlled by a woman named Rebecca Mercer. Immediately terminated. John Mayne says position and now he's saying immediately. Was this in the works? Did he know this was coming? I don't know. Maybe he knew it was coming. He just didn't know that It was gonna happen at that day at that hour. We'll see. American Airlines workers and I just I feel for you guys, American and United together cut more than 30,000 jobs last fall after the first round of payroll support expired. Well. American Airlines now has said it will send for a low notices this week to about 13,000 more employees as a second round of federal payroll aid is set to expire next month and travel demand. Still remains low. And the reason I feel so badly for them is just thank you are a flight attendant. I'm just using that as an example. You're a flight attendant, and you survive that first round. And you've you've known that things are uncertain. But you thought Hey, I made it through the first round. Maybe I'm gonna make it through the second round. But you have lived this whole past year with this uncertainty, and I know this isn't the only industry Obviously, that's been living with uncertainty, but That my heart goes out to you guys. So American says 13,000 employees got this notice. All right, I'm gonna do No, I'm not going to do some math on the fly this morning cause it's 5 47, and it would be wrong. But Trader Joe's temporarily has raised by $4 an hour. Pay of all employees. Okay, so that sounds good. Right? Let's just pretend That a trader Joe's simply. I have no idea how much they make. Let's pretend they make 15 bucks an hour. Okay? So This just says temporary. It doesn't specify how long they're going to get this $4 an hour race, Okay, but let's just say, let's say they get it for four months. So you're making 15 bucks an hour right now. And starting next week, you're going to start making 19 bucks an hour and you're gonna make 19 bucks an hour for four months. However, here's the catch. I was telling you about Trader Joe's his canceled midyear raises, which can be 65 to 75 cents. So All of a sudden. Now, after four months, you're gonna go back to making 15 bucks an hour. For the foreseeable future where you could have been making 15 65 or 15 75 an hour. From here on out. I was going to be set in stone. So in the long run, I wonder if This is beneficial for Trader Joe's to look like a good guy and give this thank you pay for the next four months because Oh, look at us. We are going along with this and we're not going to be Kroger. We're going to give our workers the pay that they deserve. Yeah, but those raises they normally get now we don't need to give him those. You see what I mean? Mm. Such a catch. And handle. Ah, he just walked out of the studio. Darn it. The story was for him. Candy maker just born quality confections announced. At the marshmallow E treat that some people love. Okay, really handles the only person I know that loves him. He's just walking back in. Let me see if I can get a handle. Handle. Are you listening? Let's see handle. Are you listening? I'm try one more thing. Okay. I just told them in his I F B. I I handle I have a story for you have a story for you. Yes. What's coming back this You got me. Hello? Uh, yeah. I can't hear you. Oh, shoot. All right, well, Turn your speaker up. Maybe you can hear there..
