>> chase has been in the big leagues a long time. guys play hard. major league baseball is in the process of determining the line between hard and possibly reckless for all of us, not just for chase. what happened. it's a shame. i think for me, you know, personally i think there should be -- you should be able to review that play. i think in the nfl, they review targeting, same with college. i think you should review a play like that and get it right. russ: now, as for don mattingly's take on the situation, he doesn't speak until 5:30. yesterday he did say if it was david wright who did what utley did and nobody got hurt, we it. i have two points to make. no. 1, it wasn't mets captain david wright. it was chase utley.
two, somebody did get hurt. he has a fractured leg. that said, one guy not pulling any punches at all over what should happen to chase utley is his honor, mayor bill de blasio. >> he can appeal all he wants. he's guilty as sin. this is a tackle. i didn't get to watch the game live. i didn't stay up that late. i woke up in the morning and went on mets.com and they're saying look at this controversy. i watched the tape. he was astounded. it wasn't close. it was a tackle. it was illegal. it was sickening. russ: i've got a feeling that the mayor of l.a. has a different take on it than mayor de blasio. that's it from here. nothing left to do but play ball tonight. back to you. dari: without a doubt. thank you, russ. as you can imagine, baseball fans have plenty to say about that slide. steve: that's right. mac king joins us to show us how fans think the league should deal with the controversy. >> as soon as the internet learned he did break his leg, social media exploded.
we have a couple here: >> mets fans we spoke to in person felt the same way. the play was dirty. >> chase utley going in hard at 2nd as the tying run scores. >> reporter: nearly 48 hours after the slide, even the most casual of mets fans have watched replays of the takedown at a variety of speeds from a variety of angles. most have arrived at the same conclusion. >> it was dirty. >> a dirty play. >> i didn't like that very much. >> he went in high. he slid past the bag and didn't try and touch the bag. >> reporter: utley's collision and the broken leg, led all of us, no matter how familiarity with, to examine the rule book.
halfway legit. >> old school baseball, they say it's okay. >> you used to see this happen a lot 30 years ago. very rarely now. >> if he hadn't broken his leg, it wouldn't have been a big deal. >> we were screaming at the tv. sucks they lost because of that. >> the debate over the semantics over plays, replay procedure and what is an illegal slide grows stale, the attention of a fan base turns back to a game and what many of you as an opportunity for retaliation. >> god help him at citi field. >> they're going to go nuts. >> i'm glad he's not suspended. i hope they try to beat him. >> in the playoffs, harvey is smart enough to realize this isn't the time to retaliate. >> if the mets are up 3 on -nothing, he's getting hit.
>> first pitch is at 8:37 p.m. steve: lots will be watching. in saturday's late breaking slides was not the first time utley took him out in 2015. he flipped him over sliding into 2nd during the fifth inning of a game. that time he was able to get up and walk away. dari: we're following breaking news. one person is dead and six injured when a truck crashed into scaffolding in the port morris section of the bronx. this happened just after 3:00 today on east 138th street. one is dead and six suffered minor injuries. no word on what caused the crash. dari: stacey delikat is live outside a club where police say an argument inside may have sparked a deadly rage. >> reporter: well, steve and dari, the three victims were innocent bystanders. they were leaving the party at the nightclub early this morning

>> i don't know what they did to him to make him go into a rage, go to the car and get a gun and shoot and fire. >> reporter: this man lives gunfire. >> i heard i want to say three or four shots. i stepped outside just to see what was going on. and i saw a lot of people just other. >> reporter: crews attracted crowds of onlookers, shocked to see a violent scene in a trendy neighborhood. >> it's very disturbing. i mean, this is my neighborhood, where i live. >> it's unexpected of this area. >> police hope surveillance video will lead them to the shooter. as for the college graduate who worked at nordstrom, she leaves behind a three-year-old son. >> how am i going to explain this to him? going to wake up and no mom.

issue of rising and in -- rising atm fees which have skyrocketed years. >> reporter: he's written to the consumer financial protection bureau asking them to cap the fees or make sure they're fully disclosed. we'll stick with the theme of saving money. who's cheaper, jet.com or amazon? jet.com launched and said it could beat prices. money magazine bought tide, paper towels and saved more than $30 going with jet which works out to 400 in savings over a year. last week, jet announced it's getting rid of the membership fee. if you take into account that amazon charges 99 for prime and its free two day shipping, you could save closer to 500 with jet. this isn't a scientific study. but they say keep in mind amazon
offers a huge selection and they have better customer service overall. they said this not so scientific study proves a point that jet can beat amazon on pricing. good to know. here's something you don't want to buy if you're looking for a bargain. $100 toothpaste. it is called theo dent three hundred. it was made with a compound that does better job than fluoride when it comes to strengthening enamel. unlike fluoride, it is safe to swallow. you can get that clinical strength in dental offices and pharmacies for a hundred bucks. if you don't want to spend that, whole foods sells a $12 version which isn't as strong and there's a version for kids. still 12 bucks a tube. i don't know. it's a lot. steve: better than 100. >> reporter: they say it works. they've done scientific studies. you can swallow it. you've got to be careful of the
steve: dental work is expensive. i've been through all sorts of dental things. >> reporter: would you spend $100 a tube? steve: no. 10 would be my limit, i think. thank you. let's talk about the weather. 70 right now. dari: it is so beautiful. steve: a perfect columbus day. >> it was a perfect day, especially if you had it off or you were outdoors. we had beautiful weather across the tri-state, not just in manhattan. we hit a high of 77 in central park. we should be in the mid 60s. we'll move back towards normal readings as we go into the next couple of days. this morning we start off with 56. area-wide, we were above average across the board. close to 80 at newark. down the shore in the belmar temperature of 73. towards montauk, you hit a high of 70. we're still in the 70s in inland locations. 70. those numbers are running a few
degrees milder than this time last night. it's comfortably dry out there. average. that's comfortable air in place. the winds are light, which is evening. we have clear skies now. we will see increasing clouds this evening. that's going to help keep temperatures slightly milder than they were last night. we're going to lows in the 50s and in the 40s across the area. i don't think we'll see much in the way of 30 degrees north and west. satellite and radar showing things quiet across the northeast, courtesy of high pressure, which has been our dominant weather feat. now it will be sliding to the east. our focus is going to change to two systems we're watching. one is an area of low pressure that's sitting off the southeastern states. there's a second area of low pressure over the great lakes. this area of low pressure does have a cold front associated with it that will sweep through the area as we go into tomorrow. before that happens, this center of low pressure will be passing to the southeast. that's going to throw cloud cover across the jersey shore. it could squeeze out an isolated
shower across the east end of long island. in the afternoon, this front makes its impact in the area and that's when we'll see another chance of light showers coming in. i think everyone will have a chance of rain. that comes in the afternoon hours tomorrow. tonight not the case. nice and dry tonight. we'll have clear skies. that will lead the way to mostly cloudy conditions. we should see breaks of sun from time to time. again, we'll see more clouds to the east as we start off the morning. there could be some showers across long island. be aware of that from the hamptons to montauk point around 8:00, 9:00 in the morning, you'll have a couple of rain showers. in the afternoon, we'll see scattered showers in the hudson valley. the front starts to move through and we'll see light rain coming through from east to west. everything clears out tomorrow night. we'll see a mix of sun and clouds wednesday. we clear things out as we go into thursday and temperatures take a big drop into the end of the week. tonight's lows in the 40s and 50s. tomorrow, sun and clouds, a few showers, and temperatures above
average. wednesday, a mix of sun and clouds. highs drop into the 60s. we'll be in the low 60s on thursday with plenty of sunshine. check out the weekend. highs dropping into the 50s, which will feel colder compared to the start of the week with our temperature readings in the 70s. lows will be in the 30s in many locations, including right here in new york city. steve: yikes. >> if you were like me and played it smart, you've dug out the winter weather gear. steve: we'll need it soon. wow. >> you'll be needing it this weekend. gather up the layers. steve: got it. dari: trick-or-treat can be tough for kids who have food allergies. steve: families are teaming up to make sure ghouls and goblins can get lots of goodies and have fun. jodi goldberg shows us house. >> reporter: this 3-1/2-year-old loves playing dressup and doing arts and crafts. she has severe food allergies which now, according to food allergy research and education, affects one in 13 kids in the
united states. >> eggs. >> she's in the anaphylactic range with her egg allergy and the gluten and dairy is pretty high, but not as bad as the eggs. >> when it comes to halloween, it's black and orange. for this family, it's become tradition to incorporate teal pumpkin, the color of food allergy awareness. >> it's known as the teal pumpkin project, back for the second year. it let trick-or-treaters know they'll be receiving toys. >> we have bouncy balls, bubbles, the vampire teeth, stickers. >> one of the great things about the project is it does help increase awareness and empathy for families who are managing food allergies. >> reporter: parents work very hard making sure the kids are avoiding the food. there are strangers, grandfather, who say you want a
times this candy may cause an allergic reaction. >> reporter: harper's mom said this way of life has become the new normal. >> at first when i found out she had a food allergy, i was worried. we've worked around it and we have as much fun as anyone else on halloween without the candy. >> reporter: they're all set with their teal pumpkin, but they're hoping other people will do the same regardless of whether or not they have children with allergies. jodi goldberg, fox 5 news. steve: nice idea. dari: jersey city will have something you can't find in manhattan. steve: completely legal. short term rentals through airbnb. what the site had to promise to the city to make it happen. dari: and scary moments for a flight heading from newark to seattle forced pilots to make an

the celebration on fifth avenue was for the parade. if you look closely for a couple of key participants, it was relief that a deal has been reached to fund the mta's five-year capital plan. the final hurdle was a significant one, needing the mayor and governor to come to an attempt, no small feat, but it is done. without an agreement, the mta was looking to cut projects like the continuation of the second avenue subway and infrastructure improvements. but after intense political posturing, the $29 billion budget looks to be set. >> it means literally to keep it simple new subway cars, new buses and rebuilt train stations. >> reporter: the key to the deal, mayor de blasio wanted assurances. governor cuomo has used the
state's gap, a political reality riders holds the city responsible even though the state holds the mta. >> i don't blame any new yorker that doesn't spend time on this. the mta is the responsibility of the state. working together, we got to a cooperative outcome that will strengthen the mta. >> reporter: to the tangible, countdown clocks. the other thing is a new signal system that with would allow the mta to run trains closer together which gives them room to increase service during the rush hour. we'll see if they do that, arthur chi'en, fox 5 news. dari: frightening moments for passengers on an alaska airlines jet. it was flight 17 headed to -- from newark to seattle. it had to make an emergency landing in buffalo shortly after taking off. that was this morning. officials say that a melting

seeing a psychiatrist or psychologist. dari: joining us is dr. kerri peterson from lenox hill. what do you know about the study? >> it was released by mass general. they found 1800 kids have a mental health condition. most commonly they found attention deficit disorder and anxiety and mood disorders. what they found is that over one in three are actually seeing their primary care provider rather than a psychiatrist for the management of these conditions. so 35 percent are seeing a pediatrician versus 26 percent seeing a child psychiatrists. steve: the mental health part is getting a short -- >> there's a shortage of child psychiatrists. so the pediatricians are compensating for this. the good news is the american academy of pediatrics has issued treatment guidelines. i think pediatricians are becoming more comfortable in managing the conditions. so the children aren't necessarily needing to see a mental health professional. one weakness they did find in the study is there's not enough
collaboration between psychiatrists who are treating kids and the pediatricians. that's one thing to be worked on. it highlights the role that primary care providers are offering. steve: they do a lot. dari: let's talk about this one. red meat, i guess there's a push to make it healthier by injecting it or inserting it with some heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids. >> this was interesting. there's a test market for beef where animals are being fed something rich in fatty acids. it's increasing the level from 20 milligrams to 200 milligrams. it's recommended we get 250 a day of omega 3's. they're trying to improve the quality of beef. it's being test marketed in texas. it's had a really good response. the consumers are saying it's

enjoy this evening if you can. it's probably the last mild one for some time. 77 is what we made it to in central park. that's above average for this time of year. we'll be closer to average tomorrow and the next day. after that, we'll see a big drop in our numbers. in the meantime, let's bask in the 70 we have in central park. humidity and dew points very comfortable. it's nice and dry out there. we have a bit of a breeze out of the south at 17 miles an hour in the park. the pressure is rising. that's showing there's high pressure in control. but that is going to be changing as we go into tomorrow as it slides to the east. now we're in the 70s in many spots like poughkeepsie and sussex and newark liberty airport. we cooled down to the 60s in montauk and islip. 66 in belmar. elsewhere across the northeast, we're not the only ones enjoying this nice, mild weather. it goes to boston where the temperature is at 73. it's 74 in our state capitol of

umbrella handy. we'll see it's pretty quiet across the western half. there's a disturbance working into the pacific northwest. doesn't look like much. this could squeeze out a shower into the end of the week. we have cooler air that's working into the great lakes for tomorrow. that's where we'll find readings in the 50s and 60s. warm weather to the south. we have readings in the 80s along the gulf coast. miami, 86. tomorrow, 90s for san antonio. vegas will be at 95. it will be 89 out towards l.a. a look at the futurecast shows it will be quiet tonight. we'll have increasing clouds. tomorrow, we'll wake up with a lot of clouds across long island. there's the isolated showers. that could be across the east end in the morning hours. we will see breaks of sun, but don't be fooled. once the cold front makes its way into the region, we'll see showers igniting from west to east, probably around 5:00, 6:00, it will make its way across new jersey and new york city. by wednesday, things will clear out as far as the rain is concerned. i think we'll see a mix of sun
and clouds. thursday, we'll see more in the way of sunshine as temperatures begin to drop. tonight's lows in the 50s across the area. tomorrow, we'll start out with a lot of clouds and see breaks of sun from time to time. have the umbrella handy for the majority of the afternoon into the early evening. that's when i expect the greatest chance of shower activity. clouds wednesday. thursday, temperatures begin to drop into the low 60s. we'll have a disturbance on friday that will give us a morning shower. check out the weekend. it's going to be colds. highs in the 50s. plenty of sunshine, but that won't keep us warm. lows will be in the 30s, even in the city. steve: all right. thank you, audrey. yesterday was national coming out today. to mark the occasion, the fdny released a calendar discussing their difficulties coming out. >> paramedics, emt's and firefighters are first responders on a new mission. they produced a video that has 12 lgbt members talking about what it was like when they came
