this looks like fake leather. the jacket in the picture does not. right away, i'm worried i'm going to bust through this like the hulk. it's called a wool coat, this looks more like felt. the black shirt was next. it is supposed to be longer and again, this is a medium. it's a little tight. this dress is too short and too tight to show on tv. take my word for it. the color is a little off compared to the picture. abby was not surprised to hear about our results. she's sticking with stores where she can see and smell the clothes before she buys them. >> not really any of the cheap facebook ads. i don't think i'm going to go down that road again. >> reporter: none of the clothing companies returned our requests for comment but in a statement, a facebook spokesperson told us facebook prohibits advertisements that are deceptive, false or misleading. the spokesperson

was your high temps today, 36 off the mark by six degrees, headlines like this, next week, another storm brewing? i'll talk about that in a moment. a warm weekend is in the forecast, that's what john was talking about. and a flurry chance tomorrow, take a peek at that, beautiful sky, there's your flurry chance around the great lakes, not too much of anything. the storm chance for next week, getting its act together, flowing into the pacific northwest, a lot of real estate to cover, the gulf of mexico, a little more juice, then exit along the eastern seaboard and possibly can to our area. timeframe? if it's going to be our storm, tuesday, wednesday or thursday of next week. futurecast shows you how it's going to work out. more clouds that developed later in your day, tomorrow morning is bright, then the clouds come in. not much snow chance but a little one there friday night into early saturday and that later saturday, if there's any moisture, it would be rain because it's going to be warm
from florida. go back to port st. lucie where otis, no jacket required down there. >> reporter: that's right. [ laughter ] certainly no jacket required. pitchers and catchers did not work out today. they took their physicals so their first workouts to be tomorrow morning. expectations are skyhigh down here in port st. lucie after getting to the world series but as you can imagine, the grind of a regular season, a run to five games in the fall classic can take its toll. especially a manager who came under fire at times last season. the roller coaster of emotions were exhausting for terry collins. >> i spent my entire life with tremendous intensity and energy. i was gassed last year at the
it was the most fun i've ever had in a game going through it. i want to do it again. i want to do it again. pretty excited about seeing those jerseys walk out on the field tomorrow. so many ups and downs during that run. i'm going to go with lowest point. lucas duda's errant throw in game five. it allowed the royals to score the tying run and they won in extra innings and get to celebrate the title on citi field. something that has haunted him all of season. >> what happened, i used it as a positive. you know, what happened last year happened last year. so learn from it, get better and hopefully make sure it doesn't happen again. across the state in tampa, it was report day for yankees pitchers and catchers. the bullpen led by their new closer, aroldis chapman. acquired from the reds in the off-season, the yankees picked
possible criminal charges in a domestic violence case. police have since dropped the investigation because of insufficient evidence. chapman faces potential discipline under major league baseball's new must violence policy. chapman said he would appeal any type of suspension. joe girardi was asked why he named chapman the closer with all the uncertainty. >> it's hypothetical to predict what's going to happen. but we felt that when we acquired him, he had been a closer most of his career. that's where we would put him, but i understand it's a sensitive issue. we'll be sensitive about it. >> reporter: time for us to step aside for a minute.
no action from the next -- the nets or the knicks. tonight, the rangers were up in toronto trying to make it six wins in their last nine games. tied in the third until derek stepan drills in the game- winner with about one deck 30 left. the rangers skate away with a 4- 2 victory. islanders trying to keep up. new york or -- new yorker and a point for making it to overtime but fell short when thomas greiss lit up the game-winner with 43 seconds left. that's the story from here in port st. lucie, we'll be back at it early in the morning tomorrow morning. as the mets pitchers and catchers go through their first full workout. reporting from tradition field, otis livingston, maurice and kristine, back to you in the studio.
