fire danger is not off the charts. and just a nice looking wednesday. five day forecast. the bay area weekend in view. ken and heather, buzz that make sense? >> absolutely. >> i think people think our water off our coast is el niño. no. it is in the equator. it creates storms that go in the atmosphere. get caught up in the flow transporting it to us. superrer charges our storms. >> we know the water is warmer from el niño. but we don't know if the jet stream will bring that weather toward us right? >> yeah. if the jet stream has to phase in with that el niño. that is why it is so important. looks like it is. when they phase in, when our winter phases in, you get that. that signature is kind of what we are talking about. >> looks good. >> thanks bilge. and stay with us. we will be right back.
>> mark joins us now talking about baseball playoffs. which, i don't really care about because we are not talking about the giants but i know other folks care. >> it has been a while since the as and giants have not been in the playoffs. so, we just move on. a couple of years ago, they lost 111 games. we were calling them the houston lastros. no longer. they put an end to the pinstripes season. though in fairness, these are not your bronx bombers of yester year.
they packed yankee stadium tonight and they did not have a thing to cheer about all night long. in fact, the only run the astros were to need provided by colby rasmus. he beat the giants with a long home run like that. that is billy crystal. lit be a long night for you billy. and in the fourth, carlos gomez. another no-doubter. it is a solo shot. what a pickup he was mid season for the astros. 2-0. one of the best hitters around. jose altuve with a single to left. no long ball needed. that is an r.b.i. and a single. plenty for dallas keichel. three relieverrers and the astros put them down, one, two, three for the night. there it is. a beautiful shutout. only three hits for the yankees and the celebration in new york begins for the visiting team. let the bubbly flow as well. look at that party.
in their clubhouse. onto kansas city in the american league divisional series that starts thursday. royals and astros. nice to see the astros moving on. but come on. wild card series? got to be three games. if you really love baseball, you know what a great story the cubs are. and it would be a shame if they were to get ousted by the pirates in just one game. but, as the cubs work out today in pittsburgh, it is preparation for tomorrow night's game. they have a feel pretty good about the guy they are throwing out there. jake arrieta, he will probably win the cy young award. the cubs have won 17 of the 18 games he has started. needless to say, he is in a groove. >> the confidence was there in the first half. you know. getting in that sweet spot of timing and the tempo of my delivery. was something that slowly transpired and got better.
as long as the tempo is there with my delivery, everything is going to work out pretty good. >> that guy is just about unbeatable right now. meantime, a little reminder last night of just how insanely popular the warriors are right now. exhibition last night, more than 18,000 fans showed up. not that it mattered but the warriors did win. and right back at it today at the interim coach luke walton, steph curry had 14 and continues his tutelage of ian clark. he has a shot at making the lone roster spot available and happy that mr. mvp has taken him under his wing. >> a lot. i'm learning a lot from him on and off the court. especially him taking the lead role and kind of being the guy i have modeled my game after. i push myself. make the team better.
>> all right, to answer the question, why do nba players need a whole month to get ready for the regular season? the chicago bulls etwan moore who is denied by the rim. he just didn't get there. that youngster does that. but how about the veteran of 18 years vince carter? that is embarrassing. he goes up, not touched by anybody. he hollers foul. just couldn't get up high enough. and, there you go. exhibition basketball. hey, fleet week of course in san francisco. and to help get it rolling, a few of the 49ers boarded the uss somerset to join in various personnel. national guard, receiver tori smith on board. and, that no contact drills. and, having a little fun out there. doing some recruiting maybe finding someone who can actually throw something. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> i didn't say that. [ laughter ] >> yeah you did. >> that is it. have a great night. >> goodnight, we will see you

ley, hurry up! you don't have much time, and i made chocolate chip pancakes. mom, i'm not 12. dibs on hers. honey, you excited about your first day? you know what? i really am. there's something about going to work that makes you feel like you're... i don't know, worth something. no offense, mom. listen... (clears throat) i wanna give you some advice. do it fast. she's gonna be late. work hard. uh-huh. keep your eye on the ball. (cell phone alert chimes) stay focused. never... (laughs) check it out! cam in overalls! (claire) ohh! (gasps) mitchell sent me the same text! why "look what you've done"? oh, because cam is helping me out with that baseball field, and mitchell hates it when he gets all farmed up. his turn-offs are farm, fizbo, and, worst of all, farmbo. hey! howdy, life pardner! (guffaws) well, i gotta go. don't wanna be late for my first-- oh, my god! why didn't you guys tell me the time?!
