baseball. perfect setting. this is scottsdale stadium, giants will be working out in a few minutes to get ready for their ball game today. last night was a rare -- you don't see a lot of nighttime exhibition games. madison pitched. giant's ace left hander gives up three runs in the 1st inning. winds up pitching three total innings and gives up five hits. if you know anything about madison he keeps things well in perspective. i spoke with him after they took him out of the game in the giant's clubhouse. nothing is really bothering him about his outing last night. >> last start cutter weren't very good like a normal relief. today they were better but still not where i want them. they are definitely better. command felt pretty good. everything felt really good.
felt like i made a lot of good pitches. >> anything imparticular next session out that will be looking to improve on? >> yeah. getting guys out and not giving up runs. >> reporter: did you guys know that dr. phil is a raging monster off the air? >> you cannot be getting paid for this. >> i don't think i have tailgated solo before. >> we can do it. >> reporter: i'm waiting for the crowd to get here. but, on a serious baseball note. this is a big day for the giants. they are going to get their first look at johnnie quato. he is a guy they paid big money for in the off season. over a 100 million contract. he'll make his giant's debut in a couple hours.
in the meantime i'm getting ready for it. i'm wound up for the game. it is going to be a nice afternoon here. afternoon here. it is coming to a point where it is over work. you hear fans saying it about the even year and it is a thing in the bay area. it is coming to the point where it is passe. it is probably nothing more than a coincidence. it is a great coincidence for the giants. they love it. fact of the matter is it is a long season. believe me, these guys will not be thinking oh, this is an even year. i guess we'll win. that's far from the hard core
baseball player's mentality now. for now in spring training they are going along with the joke. it is all fun and games. come the regular season believe know, none of the giants will be saying it is an even year. it is great. it will be our year. >> talking about johnnie, i think sonny gray is tossing today for the a's. do you expect a lot from him this year? >> reporter: undoubtedly the ace with the oakland pitching staff. we had an interview lined up with billy today but he is under the weather. there is a lot of viruses going around, even despite the great weather. we are not going to be at the a's game. they are counting on him to carry the load of a young pitching staff. the a's, boy it will be a long season. for the most part, it is expected that it will be improved over last year. that's not saying a whole lot
because they lost more than 90 games. but sonny gray unquestionably is their ace. >> a very relaxed mark staking out his spot on the lawn waiting for the giants game. ants game. coming up here on "mornings on 2", you will get your r&r soon, i hope. let's talking about thing out there called uber for law. next we'll talk with an author about affordable legal advice anyone can get. inappropriate content versus filters that are too strict. battle over ipads given to student. student. -- students.
were joined live with more on what is being called the uber of legal advice. the legal system can be intimidating for people. >> reporter: it is confusing and intimidating to talk to lawyer. the price tag is way too high. you can talk to somebody for a couple hours and the next month you get a bill for thousands of dollars. that's out of the question for most people. >> let's talk about the life things almost everyone goes through. what are the top three, if you will, instances where we should get some real legal help instead of asking our older brother. >> here's what we found. the big areas where people want
simple answers and help are family law. maybe you are getting divorced with a child custody fight. you have an elder abuse matter. immigration. can i get a green card? can i become a citizen? can i get a work visa? how do that do that? small businesses. i'm a small business owner myself. i know how it is. you have to keep a close eye on the bottom line but you want to know should i sue this vendor or somebody is threatening to sue me. we are able to bring low-cost legal services at fixed rates for people in these areas. >> a lot of people go to the internet for advice and medical help. why would you say it is a good idea to log on and try to get legal help on the internet? it seems dangerous to me. >> right. well you have to be careful online. you don't want to search for a legal answer. you might end up on a blog or
somebody's social media post and they don't really know what they are talking about. we are a reputable site. almost every lawyer in america is rated on the site, including me. you get from a zero to a ten rating. you can look at customer reviews. peer reviews. you can look at people's disciplinary records so you know what kind of lawyer you are dealing with. say you have one of those legal problems. guess what? you can get free legal advice on the website. type in your question. lawyers in your area will give you actual legal advice within 24-hours. there is over eight million questions that have been answered. you might find the answers comes up like that. if that is not sufficient, for $39, flat rate, no hidden charges, you can get a 15 minute consultation with an attorney in your area who you chose based on the ratings. again it is all clear and up
front. that's is avo legal services. >> i want to get your take on the replacement for justice antonin scalia. how big of an impact does this have on our country? >> it has a huge impact. he was a major conservative voice on the court without him the court is evenly divided four to four. we need nine justices on the supreme court. we need to have an odd number so we don't have ties. it is important to get his replacement nominated, confirmed by the senate. the supreme court has a lot of work to do. let them get back to work with nine justices. it is very important. >> is it important before we have a new president? >> yeah. there is nothing in the constitution saying if you are in your last year of office you cannot elect a supreme court justice. justice scalia was a strict
constructionist of the constitution. it says the president nominates, the senate confirms. let's go through that process. >> lisa bloom joining us live on the 9. thank you very much. coming up on "mornings on 2", spring isn't just for baseball and house cleaning. up next we talk to an expert act how to spruce up and refresh your career. a woman is attacked and choked. inside a bathroom at san jose state university. we'll tell you what police are saying about the victims and attacker coming up.

need it more than ever. you cannot take anything for granted. coming in the spring everybody is hunkered down whether in california, midwest east coast or south. you put on weight over the winter. it is not literally. figuratively you do up here. you start to think about your job and how to break out of the monotony. >> what are the signs of change? >> when you are leaving earlier and getting in later. we see it in sports all the time. it is the same in the business community. we can not let that happen. >> i feel like i have a purpose every day whether it is to inform or educate. i feel i get to do something everybody day that is special. not a lot of people have that
feeling. >> it depends how you look at things. do you want to have a product other people want to use that helps them do their job? whether it is computers, suits or the news. the end user will have a positive or negative experience. when you are feeling like, i have been there done that. now is the time to say i'm going to get in earlier, stay later and ask for bigger projects to tackle. >> you may be knocking on the boss' door saying i'm ready to go. throw more things on my plate. >> absolutely. you have to look at your breaking bad. you have to get to the door and say i want the assignment. >> if you decide it is time to make a shift in your life and change careers that is a big leap of faith. >> if you have been in a place long enough, let's call that four-plus years. you have an emotion on it built
up. if you have a bad week or bad month your boss knows what you are about. you are giving that up when you go some place else. when an employee takes a new job they think they are getting more money based on what they have done. employer thinks it is for what you are going to do. when you bring somebody in and you give them $20 million they are paying you for the future but you think you are awarded for last season. same thing in the employment market. >> do you think people are always looking for the next job or better opportunity? >> i think it is where the economy is and social media and all the great tools we have. you are getting e-mails all the time. here's a job that matches up with your background. we'll saw your profile and this is a similar industry. it is hard to ignore it. social media, facebook for
example, went from 20 something's and kids to genx and baby-boomers are on it more. >> at what point do you tell your current boss you are looking? >> it has to be about the relationship with your boss and do they truly want what is best for you. if you have been in a place a year it is tough. if you have been there ten years and i have a great relationship with your manager, i'm a big believer in that. >> 11 years here. hopefully 11 more. >> i feel like it would affect family life. there is a lot of times i have a rough day and i feel bad and i bring it home. by rebooting or refreshing your career it has that effect.

guardian angel now? >> something like that. i believe in some spiritual forces being out there in the universe somewhere. yeah, i think somebody said to me on twitter there is a reason we are keeping you around here to do some good things. i like that perspective. >> brian writes close call. you need to give this dude the rest of the week off. >> i got a hard time for being back here this morning. >> through ktvu's facebook page, instagram and twitter well wishes for you and chip from around the world. >> and the story went around the world. let me say here the comments on outpouring of support and love has been overwhelming. more than i can respond to or handle ever. normally i try to talk to everybody on twitter and facebook. it is overwhelming. i can not respond to everybody. i want everybody to know i
appreciate. and all their love and support means the world to me. it absolutely does. >> courtney robinson has a question. did the woman realize she almost hit you? i hope you got an apology? >> she was a bit disoriented and confused about what took place. so no. we didn't really have a conversation. she was talking with the cops and they were sorting everything out. i don't hold her at fault at all. i mean she probably caused what happened but no hard feelings. >> you relaxed after. how did you relax? >> the only way i know how to relax was with a nice, cold beer. old beer. to me that was the best way to unwind after the scariest day i
have had in a long time. we work in this business and cover awful, awful things that happen to people all the time. crashes or whatever it is. we need to put in perspective, there is a lot of people that haven't gotten out of the way like i did. we cover those stories on a daily basis and it gives me a new perspective on that part of the job. >> take it away, alex. according to google most people are turning to their phones to plan and book travel. >> company says there has been a 50% increase in mobile travel questions on the site. >> to help with extra traffic google is launching destinations ongoing. we are joined by the google travel expert. talking about it. what is going on with this? >> so, we realize that -- as you said a lot of people turn to their mobile phones to
figure out where should i go? we launched this new service called destinations on google. it tells you that where should i go? what should i do when i get there? and how much money is this going to cost me? if you were planning a trip to europe search for europe destinations. you'll see a list of cities and the best time to go. if you are one to avoid crowds you'll see the best time to go when no one is there. you'll see the best prices of hotels and flights. it helps make the travel planning easier. >> are you basing what is most popular based on the number of searches people are putting into google? i might search 25 times for hawaii before i decide to go to las vegas. >> when we look at the top places people search for, for instance santa cruz is one of
the most top searched places domestically and san francisco. maltese and belize are hot for people in san francisco. >> i desperately need a vacation. what are the hot spots now? >> right now across the state there is a trend playing out here. it is beach vacations. one of the top searched places is myrtle beach. then a couple other places in mexico like cancun. places in california are very popular. huntington beach and laguna beach round out the top five. internationally people are searching greece and scotland. brazil is a hot search and
