Followers of our fair leader's Twitter feed
have no doubt noticed the back and forth banter between Mayor Slay and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. The two have a whole lot riding on the outcome of the National League Division Series.
And by a "whole lot" we mean not really that much at all. Unless you count a Pulitzer Prize-winning publication.

as an added bonus should Manny and Co. come up short. Rumor has it that Slay may double-down and throw in the Post-Dispatch
. But then, would that be adding insult to injury?
