"Banned or sold to a U. S company because the U. S has democracy, an independent court system, presidential elections And now for the foreseeable future. The U. S even has Tic Tac. Check back in with Katy Feeney, an 18 year old tic tac star. I spoke to right after the band was announced She had been so upset. But when I called her up six months later, to be completely honest, I forgot about it. I went from like every day. I was terrified and I'm going crazy in my mind going back and forth and thought about what I'm going to do once take talk has gone to just not even thinking about it at all. I feel like it's like the stages of just like a break up. I remember learning in school. There's like denial and then acceptance or anger, and there's all these different stages like that's kind of what I felt like with Tic tac. It was like I was going through a awful break up. Katie wasn't the only one who felt like she was going through a break up. In the end. There are many broken hearts. Trump got dumped. Microsoft got dumped. Oracle got dumped. Here's Kurt. I think these were all worlds that are used to getting their way. Right? You have the president. You have some of the top venture capitalists and all of technology. You have some of the top technology CEOs and you have the Chinese government right? Which of those groups usually loses, and the answer is none of them. They're all used to winning. And they're all used to kind of getting things Tioga way they want. That's such a good point, and also underscores by the ending of this is so monumental because all these people who are used to getting their way One of them got their way. The person who got their way was the CEO of Bite Dance. Young Yuming, This Chinese entrepreneur who kind of came out of nowhere and built this company.

"Emily chang microsoft tried to buy tiktok at. It didn't happen. Why did you wanna buy tiktok. We had a very crisp vision or for what we want to do with it. And including for example addressing some of the very real concerns national security but that was last summer and be moved on. He doesn't sound that sad. That microsoft lost out. Sources told us that microsoft felt. This new deal was not what they had bargained for. Microsoft wanted in when tiktok would be. There's and there is alone. They didn't want to own a minority stake. So oracle wins. The bid and trump tells reporters. He gave the deal his blessing. Here's trump in front of his glaring helicopter. Very big news on tick tock tick tock Is moving along. We're dealing with oracle but we'll see whether or not it all happens but conceptually. I think it's a great deal for america. we'll have nothing to do with china. It'll be totally secure but that would be the last time we hear. Trump talked publicly about tiktok. He moved on sources told me white house officials wouldn't even return to talks calls in a way this was kind of a stroke of luck framing. Here's kurt i think. President trump and his administration got sidetracked. I think that the election was upcoming. I think it was shortly after this. That the president got the corona virus and was suddenly kind of out of commission for a few days and this type of thing which he had made sure the administration was right in the middle of suddenly. Couldn't move forward without their cooperation. And so this deal. That never crossed the finish line because there was no one there to offer it through. And then we're kind of stock with our editors asking everyday like what's happening what's happening in. Meanwhile there's an election trump moves onto with other fights and other challenges and he leaves office and he leaves office without a deal and we never get really the ending of the story. I think that this is a totally frustrating. Chapter in the trump presidency. You know this was the business deal of the decade. That never actually happened. And what bothers me the most as a reporter who spent years covering this story is that we never got to the bottom of whether there was a security threat posed by tiktok. We still don't have the answer. Trump officially leaves office. Joe biden becomes president and his administration makes it clear. The tiktok is not a priority. The button administration puts an official hold on the tiktok sale process the court proceedings and the ban. He says look into the national security risks but sources tell us. That's unlikely to happen anytime soon. Because biden is busy with corona virus. And the us economy as for the deal with oracle more. It's sort of fades and it's this big money. Mental chapter in the company's history suddenly erased couth. Gone like it never even happened. And there's another piece of context. I think is important. In recent decades china has banned most. Us internet companies from operating in the country and in china there's less recourse to legal challenges but tiktok was able to capitalize on american freedoms. This is a big reason. Why tiktok wasn't band or sold a us company. Because the us has democracy an independent court system presidential elections and now for the foreseeable future the us even has tiktok. I check back in with katy feeney and eighteen year old tiktok star. I spoke to right after the ban was announced she had been so upset. But when i called her up six months later to be completely honest i forgot about it. I went from like every day. I was terrified and like going crazy in my mind going back and forth in thought about what i'm going to do once. Tiktok is gone to just not even thinking about it at all. I feel like it's like the stages of i guess. Like a break-up. I remember learning in school. There's like denial and then acceptance or anger. There's all these different stages. Like that's kind of what i felt like with tiktok was like i was going through an awful break. Katie wasn't the only one who felt like she was going through a break. Up in the end there are many broken. Hearts trump got dumped microsoft. Got dumped oracle got dumped. Here's cart i think. These were all worlds. That are used to getting their way right. You have The president you have some of the top venture capitalists in all of technology. You have some of the top technology. Ceo's and you have the chinese government right which of those groups usually loses and the answer is none of them. They're all used to winning and they're all used to kind of getting things go the way they want. That's such a good point and also underscores why the ending of this is so monumental because all these people who are used to getting their way none of them got their way. The person who got their way was the ceo of bytedance. John yuming this chinese entrepreneur. Who kind of came out of nowhere and built this company and was able to you know Win over all those all those different people the bytedance e o one. When i go back and listen to all my interviews almost no one i spoke to but new mean would come out on top. Here's where he's a very very rational person. He expected to be a very tough journey. And that he understood that this was a fight yuming might be unusually quiet and meek for tech ceo but he is the personality. It takes to write out the turbulence. He he perseveres he prize himself on delayed gratification. And you know in a way. He's a little masochistic so he really has a like all heat price himself on having a lot of patience and Going after the really really difficult problems. This idea of delayed. Gratification is kind of a stereotype about chinese executives and government officials that they can endure the short term pain and wade out the us electoral cycle because american politics are so temporary and in china. Xi jinping has no term limits. he's making decisions for the decades ahead. Not forty five day decrees but that's exactly what you mean. Bet on that. If he actually fought back against trump pushed back against his own powerful investors in delayed the ban in court just long enough. The trump would get distracted lose interest. It took a lot of clips spa but you means plan worked. He was proven right. As for alex. Ju the founder who came up with so many of the original ideas behind tiktok he also managed to hang on he took a strategy and investment role at bytedance. He helped teaming on the us tiktok deal and even though alex failed at politicking on behalf of tiktok and got pushed aside for an american co in the end he outlasted kevin mayor the guy higher to replace him. Alex remains committed to that vision of tiktok. He had shunned the train years ago several months. After trump left office remain installed a guy named showed the chew as a ceo of tiktok show has connections in the west. He went to harvard business school and worked at goldman sachs but he speaks chinese and lives in singapore and not long after that yuming said he would be stepping down as ceo of bytedance. He released a statement. That i wanna read a few lines from. He wrote the truth. Is i lack some.

You're in high school. Yes, Yes. And you have a side gig? Yeah, I post various short form content videos, and I also go live on Amazon and take talk and instagram basically to sell products and I've been able torno money from it. When you say you've been able to earn money from it has the amount of money you've been earning. Has that been published by anybody? Yes, I actually earned over a million dollars, which is so crazy to even say out loud. You earned a million dollars in what period of time. Two months from November. Tol January 1st And you're still earning income as each week goes by. That is correct. You're basically creating a video of yourself opening up a product. You open up the box. You talk about the product. You give it a review. How many people watch you do this? Through my social media platforms. I probably received about 150 million monthly views equal to about half the U. S population. Yeah, when you put it like that, that is just so crazy to even think about. Yeah, I guess so. So how many hours a day are you spending on your business activities online? Probably about 3 to 4 hours a day. And so how many videos where you typically posting on the day? Shooting three videos a day. And how long is each one? The video itself probably takes me an hour. Tonto Stillman at it and the video Um Ends up being about 30 to 45 seconds. Is there anybody helping you in the production? It's pretty much just me and so at this pace. Are you expecting that your annual income is going to be in the neighborhood of $6 million? I'm not entirely sure yet. Has a changed your views of what your college major is going to pay. So I'm definitely majoring in business and also marketing depending on with school I go to and what they offer as a major. If I get into my in state school, that would be me saving $50,000 a year and ultimately $200,000 over the four years. That's Katy Feeney, 18 years old and an Internet sensation and remember in 2018 Now, of course you don't. It was 2018. Nothing pre coded matters anymore anyway. 2018.

"Welcome back to the wreck, Cattleman show, you know, there's a lot of struggle is we deal with Cove it in this country, one of the most impactful problems that people are struggling with his unemployment. More than 10 million Americans who have lost their jobs are still out of work. 20 million lost their jobs at some point or other about half of regained employment, but the other half Still out of work, and one of the biggest challenges is how do you get a new job? Well, fortunately, thanks to the Internet. The ability to create your own income to create a gig. Activity that produces money for yourself has never been easier and to illustrate this fact of the incredible changes that are going on in the marketplace, thanks to the Internet. I'm very happy to welcome onto the program. Katy Feeney. Katie, Welcome to the show. Thank you. I'm so honored to be here. Katie, You're 18 years old. You're in high school. Yes. Yes. And you have a side gig you are involved in. Um I don't even know how I would phrase it. I'll let you phrase it, but it comes down to you being very well known for what is considered a unique style. Of short form product review videos and interactive live streams. On the Web. Such sites is Tic Tac, instagram, Snapchat, Amazon and YouTube. Talk about what you're doing and how you're doing it. Yeah. So I am known throughout these platforms for unboxing videos and product reviews, So I post various short form content videos, and I also go live on Amazon and take talk and instagram. Basically to sell products, and I've been able torno money from it, and it's become a career for me. When you say you've been able to earn money from it has the amount of money you've been earning. Is that been published by anybody is that publicly known Yeah. So recently, The New York Times actually published an article on Snapchat Spotlight snap Just new short foreign platform on the APP. I actually earned over a million dollars, which is so crazy to even stay out loud, but it's become I mean, it's just so unreal, and I never realized how much money can be earned from posting content on Social media. You earned a million dollars in what period of time. Two months. And what? Two month period did you do this? Um, from November to January, 1st. And you're still earning income. Aziz each week goes by That is correct. So how is it that you're earning this kind of money from doing what you're doing? I mean, you're basically creating a video of yourself opening up a product. You're opening up the box. That's why they call it Unboxing. You open up the box. You talk about the product. You give it a review. How many people watch you do this? Um, uh, through my social media platforms. I probably received about 150 million monthly views and on Snapchat some of my videos that Earned the most money from rain from like a million used to two million views more or less, So I'm you know, a good amount of people see these videos and that's how I earned money from it. The more views the more money to be made. So just to put it on a comparative basis based on your monthly views, A number of people equal to about half the U. S population are watching you each month. That? Yeah, that when you put it like that, that is just so crazy to even think about. Yeah, I guess so. Now, when you began doing this Was it your intention to do it as a business or you just goofing around on the Web like any other teenager? Yeah. When I first started, it was definitely I hadn't really thought about turning it into a business. Yet it started at a pretty young age, posting dance videos with my friends and then Over the past year, I would say for the past couple years, I really have wanted to turn it into a business and I made that shift to make my content career driven, which is how I got into the product reviews and On boxing's because I think at first I think everyone when they get into social media, they do it for fine with their friends. But once you start gaining a following and you see that people are really engaged with your content Um, you I guess I realized that it can be so much more than that. Now you're a full time student s. So how many hours a day are you spending on your business activities online? Probably about 3 to 4 hours a day it really it depends on How much content I want to make that day. If I have any brand pro, most I have to do is obviously going to take more time. But I mean I'm at school all day and then I have to Old videos and edit videos, so it's a lot but I've really learned how to optimize my minutes and make the best of the time I have, and especially since school is virtual for me so far this year. I've definitely had a lot more time on my hands, which has been really helpful in growing my business. And so how many videos air you typically posting on a day? 2 to 3 videos a day. And how long is each one? The video itself probably takes me an hour. Tonto Stillman edit and the video Um Ends up being about 30 to 45 seconds. Oh, yeah, definitely. It takes a lot of more time than most people would probably think the film part of it because I am a bit of a perfectionist. Um, but yeah, and the turning into just like a 30 to 45 2nd video. And Is there anybody helping you in the production? It's pretty much, just me. Um, I do have help from my mom and my parents. They They definitely helped me a lot when it comes to brand deals and stuff like that, and I've recently been working with Network of fact who's been really helping me manage. The type of content I'm producing and the different cos I'm working with. They've been really helpful because Now I'm just getting tons and tons of e mails a day from various companies and Asking me to review their products or on box their product, So it's been It's been a lot and I mean I feel like now it's It's more than a one person job. And so at this pace are you expecting that your annual income is going to be in the neighborhood of $6 million? Um, I guess it's possible. I'm not entirely sure yet, which is You know, That's why I want to invest my money wisely because social media really it's not guaranteed to last forever. So I think right now my focus is just being smart about the money that I've made so far. So then that that money can grow and if tic tac toe and one day or instagram Snapchat if it becomes less popular. I have this money that's been growing instead of it all. Just Going coming to it a complete end. So do you see yourself doing this forever? Or what's next? What you have in mind? Yeah. You know, it's exciting to think about the future. And I do see this becoming. Ah. Job for the rest of my life. I mean, It's going live on Amazon and selling products. I can see myself doing that in college. Even if it's in my my dorm room. It's definitely since I've gone, I guess like the product route of Reviewing and unboxing. It's definitely It's not going to be a challenge for me to turn it into a career and I can I can definitely see myself doing more with the live streams and Maybe maybe I'll be on TV selling products one day. I'm not exactly sure, but definitely lots of opportunities ahead. You mentioned going to college, so this obviously has not altered your views of attending college. Has it changed your views of what your college major is going to bay? So I'm definitely majoring in business and also marketing depending on which school I go to and what they offer as a major, but it's definitely Opened up my eyes to the possibility of going tol a college of my choice based on the colleges. I've applied, too, because I first it was definitely going to come down to Like financial, then I had to apply for a loan. So now I have the ability to go to a private school. But then if I get into my in state school, that would be me saving $50,000 a year and ultimately $200,000 over the four years, so it's definitely going to be a tough choice when it comes to the time And once I You're back from all of the schools, but it's a decision. I'll have to make I have a feeling you're going to get acceptance letters from every school that you apply to, But that's just me, speculating, e hope, so that would be awesome. So tell us Give me advice for everybody is listening to you right now about careers and innovation and entrepreneurship. Tell.

"Yeah. Welcome back to the wreck, Cattleman Show last segment. We talked about the nonsense going on with games Stop. Let's talk now about what's happening in the broader economy. 900,000 Americans filed for unemployment benefits again last week, continuing the saga ever since Cove it began. Drilling down a little more to specific pockets of the economy. The American Nursing Association has just released a survey of nurses nationwide. I think we can all agree. Nurses are among the most important people in the world as a result of the pandemic these days, and they're having economic challenges. 42% of nurses say they've delayed making purchases do the lack of money 39% say they've had to spend down their savings. 32% 1 out of three are using credit cards to pay bills. Quarter of nurses have stopped paying their student loans. 11% have withdrawn money from retirement accounts prematurely because they needed the cash. 9% of nurses have gotten second jobs. Another 9% I've borrowed from friends or family. 4% of nurses are getting help from food banks and a third of the nurses in this country. Are thinking of quitting their jobs. This. Is a bit of a crisis and one thing I know that we all want to do when we're in such stress like this. Eat chocolate. What more better comfort food is there than chocolate? Well, here's one example where it's getting harder. Good diver has announced that they're selling or closing all 128 of their stores over the next couple of months. It's not just good diver that isn't able to pay rent because nobody's shopping retail these days. Physically, that is 33% of small businesses say they're unable to pay their rent this month. We need to recognize the challenges that are ongoing and fortunately to the rescue or the stimulus checks, right? Well, Americans air large part taking those stimulus checks and saving the money, which means they didn't really need it by food or pay renter would have you Americans saved $1.4 Trillion in the first nine months of last year, twice a smudge is usual. That's equal to 10% of all household spending in America. More than a third of those first stimulus checks were deposited into bank accounts less than a third of it was spent. And what is it that Americans say they are eventually going to spend the money on? Travel 60% say that they're planning a trip in 2021, bolstered by the news of a vaccine. We're all anxiously looking forward to the day when we can safely leave our homes and Nixon mingle with others. 24% say they're willing to go cruising in 2021, but 18% say they will never get on a cruise ship again because of the health risks. So where is that people are planning to go the top five domestic destinations. The choices here in the U. S number one is Florida. Followed by California, New York, North Carolina and Texas. The top five international destinations for Americans. France, Mexico, Italy. Germany and Canada. So my message she was this If you are planning to go traveling as we get out of this pandemic, you really need to start making your travel plans now because if France is the number one international tourist destination I got news for you. They're not making Paris any bigger. As all of those tourists descend upon the city, you know that hotel rooms will be hard to find, and the prices for those hotel rooms are going to skyrocket. Dido for Broadway in New York. Good luck Getting a concert ticket or tickets to a Broadway show with everybody trying to travel all at once, So hurry, Hurry! Hurry with those travel arrangements, but Because we don't know for sure how soon we'll all be healthy enough to travel. We don't know how soon the cities will truly open themselves back up again. Make sure that they are refundable canceled will reservations you're making. Make sure you buy travel insurance in case your plans have to change. And it's not just travel that people are going to be spending their money on. Some folks are saying forget about traveling to have a good time. I'm just gonna have a good time at home. How? By making my house better. By buying a bigger house. Yep. Home Renovations and home construction are riding waves home construction last year had a 14 year high because so many Americans air working from home 42%. Of U. S workers. In fact, four out of 10 have been working from home during this pandemic. Are they going to go back to the office 30% of the workers who are working from home? Say that if they're forced to return to the office, they'll quit. Partly because of the health of fears but partly because they just enjoy working from home. It's so much easier you don't have to commute. You don't have to spend money on parking. You don't have to spend money buying lunch. You don't have to buy a work based wardrobe. And your productivity is higher because you don't have all the distractions of people wander and by your cubicle or desk talking in distracting you. 30% of workers adamantly. Insisting on continuing to work from home. All of this has helped to stave off bankruptcies in America. As people have been hunkering down bankruptcies and factor down 40% in France and Britain, they're down 25% on average in the European Union. But economists are saying this might actually not be a good thing. What strikes me is a little weird. How can the absence of bankruptcies be bad? Well, the economists are saying that the only reason bankruptcies air down is because these companies, which frankly should be bankrupt, are being propped up artificially by all the government stimulus that they're getting. They say that in France, 10% of companies avoided bankruptcy because of government funding. And it's basically creating what they're now calling zombie firms companies that aren't making money. They're losing money. They have no hopes of ever making money. What they're being able to stay in business because governments are giving them money to avoid them, shutting down what happens when the government stimulus stops due to the economy recovering That is when those companies will finally go bankrupt and you'll see a wave of bankruptcies on a global basis. It is, in fact, the possibility of downside that has a lot of people spooked about the investing world. My concern shared by all of us here, it element financial engines is that some investors aren't doing what they need to be doing for their long term financial success because they're so focused on what's happening at the moment. So fearful that there might be a short term market downturn that they are failing to stay focused on the long term, and that's why I announced last week that we've launched downside defender It's a way that allows you to invest in a diversified portfolio, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the returns provided by the financial markets, but allows you to set a limit on the downside target value that you don't want to go below. I encourage you to learn more about downside Defender. If you have been concerned so much so about investing that you've been sitting on the sidelines, see if downside defender Works for you. For more information about it. Just go to ric Edelman dot com. And when we come back on the program, we're going to be visited by Internet sensation Katy Feeney. Stay with us..

Garcia guess they adopt and Garcia gets tackled by aid pestilence he's a really good game it has stolen the six to two twenty junior Bobby Sallisaw also a senior there as well as the play pretty well yeah the the defensive front for the most things has played some really really disciplined football I mean no surprise even looking at the score they may be down ten points but the fact is it's only been ten points scored this entire game you've you've really got to give credit we knew this would be a down defensive battle it is lived up to that in every sense of the word I I think the difference is who's been able to put the ball in the end zone when they've had the opportunity and the difference so far in this game is the feature it's a burden for centuries they're playing in their fourth five years that's the help a little bit this is the team that for many games like this this game has been even but it's come down a couple things absolutely and I'm while the Mustangs have played with boys and I think it's certainly would certainly surprise anyone if they tune in for the first time that this is the first time in program history that the Mustangs abandon.

"And people don't realize that people don't understand baseball and and I like you do and and and that's all but your knowledge then I think the important thing is our team chemistry is really gelled between that you know the the patrons of the new guys and that's a terrible thing to break up so I think we're a lot like you said until we she would get the five hundred and then we might have a shot I'm not sure either smoke or bomb garden anybody I would do my answer them not a guy that lost that game four slash that he was pitching batting practice round Dyson has been pretty good he's been for some reason I'm not good on the road and back to back games I guess there was an issue someone brought up this morning to me but no one can take Milan sin you can forget about that and dicing does have some value but is not going to bring much back Smith can bring something back he's the one for me that should that should go I love talking to him and the whole thing but that that twenty three for twenty three he blew the save the other night of before something happens with him I would I would see what I could do with him he's the first one to go for me we tried we should go for RBI guys because we put one of one of the guys that an online according to continue get a lot of runs yeah yeah it's good that I'm basically just got to get in and Pablo soon is cooled off and you know that'll that'll come back we'll start hitting again Longoria is heading but the foot injury yet yeah I don't like to hear that Crawford getting his hits you know it's gotten doubles now is last fifteen sixteen games in the Johnson played well he's been part of it and Pelor from his moments held so he'll do something every game today he he deep down the fly ball and got an out at second base and a force that which Johnny elige which was pretty cool so Pelor does something and then the little Solano knows how to play baseball yeah yeah yeah yeah you've got people gotta realize we got a guy running this organization really knows baseball before I don't think we do it okay well with how they did win a few World Series before but it got away from him after fourteen that that right thank you all right thanks bye okay let's go to Mike Mike is where's my bike is an antelope Mike nice to have you on the show go ahead good afternoon Sir you silly question for yeah I just been wondering this for a long time and I was always wondering why the major league when they do the scheduling and I know it's a way home away but they scheduled a team that comes in dynamax and then they go and they claim there in Arizona and then the next week on the the bay area and they played you know a week later it's just like bang bang you yeah I mean you get the same pictures in the same everything I just campaign mix them up first a little bit more like maybe take a couple weeks and then have them change come in I've never understood why they can't schedule at that yeah I don't know either it's done by computer it's done by computer used to be done by Katy Feeney Phyllis they used to do the schedule on they were part of the National League in the American League but they put the whole league under one umbrella and then all of a sudden the computer thing and it's a complicated deal to make the schedule I'm with you though I mean you think you should be able to make a schedule it doesn't have something back to back especially if you're only going to see a team six times for a year right so I know you play Cincinnati on the seventh of the month and you're playing on the twenty first and then you don't play again for the rest of the year you know we had that with the giants in may with gentran Cincinnati for four and it says that he was here the next weekend for three and that's it there were done well so I agree with you if you'd like to see it spread out a little more yeah it is it is it is frustrating that you like me well I mean and I'm not there's an older but I remember when you know they would have now the basically all the National League teams and the American League play their thing and all that and now this interleague bang it just to me it just messes up the game because you're like you said you're only get to see him once or twice once actually twice the teams but now you got to play all the American League team then it just kind of lost its luster yeah okay well and that's and that's been very successful for baseball and it's the it's the new wave people look at it they want to see players from each league and that they're selling not just sixteen teams are fifteen teams of fourteen teams they're selling thirty teams and let us that's that's the business they have in their very successful at it but I'm with you I I like to see a broken up a little more last thing is that I I'm like you said is five hundred points to get the five hundred then you can start talking about it I mean this is all you know here say the what's going to happen before we get the five hundred you got to get you know and then you start winning more like you said that yeah we shouldn't start winning series that's when you start yeah catching up on grounds that's it that's okay you in a series and all of a sudden you pick up a game of pick up again pick up the game look there only a few games out of this thing as I said this morning I went through it and kind of detail just take a look at the loss column giants of forty nine losses okay so this is July fifteenth this isn't September fifteenth July fifth writing a forty nine losses San Diego is gonna lose today they're down for nothing to the Braves in the bottom of the if they're gonna have forty eight Colorado's got forty six Arizona's got forty seven Cincinnati's got forty eight Pittsburgh's got forty eight Saint Louis as forty five and the brewers have forty six and the Phillies have they won today they've got forty five so you know you're you're talking three of four games are two games separating the giants from the whole pack and it's it's it's nothing so can they sustain it let's see but just to just write it off it is silly at this point yellow what Andre going down the date at the minor had that lantern online and that it's not it's painful and very famous injury anyway so you have a good rest definite Sir thank you very much okay Mike you too all right into a cambiar well a lot to talk about your thoughts about the giants and your M. V. P. from today in the fact they one eight three today would go through the game a little bit more but time now to re live the home run of the weak spots by booting bakery after the game be sure to stop by their flagship location on fisherman's wharf and well we'll go with the the big first baseman today and he did put the giants in the lead two to one at this point and was his first home run in awhile and boy if he could so to get hot with the power again that would be it would be nice to see it in this is Brandon belt for chat scene it's on its way and build a top high fly ball to right yeah looks back at all here then the giants take the lead on Brenton belts eleventh home run of the season that's the perfect place to hit it in this ballpark in the right field why Miller park a hitter's park I said the son of the pre game yesterday Alonso power just the casual conversation to have them a few weeks ago I said what's the best hitter's park thinking you know of course feel this is not Milwaukee and boy you can believe you hit the ball to right field in Milwaukee it is good night I'll see you later the ball just flies out of there so I would Slater of course Posey just crush one today elige is home run boy you know I know is a line drive with it goes over that wall in over the yellow line that's a home run so belt got it out is good good for him and though the giants eight runs here eight to three they won ten seven on Friday night and lost a heart breaker last night five to four so good weekend series for the giants now they are on the plane to Colorado with a double header tomorrow temperatures in the nineties it's going to be a very interesting series to listen to believe me on the radio or to watch it on TV in Shawn Estes is doing a good job as well I want to commend him on that know if anyone wants to comment on that but Shawn Estes is then very nice job analyzing the games Dick thing what was gonna happen as a pitcher does as I said this morning is like Tony Romo Tony Romo football tell you the play before you they come out of the huddle he's telling you what the play is going to be in who's going where Shawn Estes a little like that he you know he really does give you the play and the pitch and what's going to happen where you have to pitch because Marat the last night if they would listen to Shawn Estes and I don't know oppose he was thinking about I put this on Posey to throw in a a breaking ball to Ben gamble after he couldn't get around the ninety eight and you just speed up is bad knows the end of the game last night so Shawn Estes I want to comment on him I think he's doing a nice.
