The Mets are the toast of the town, epecially after Sunday's win over the Chicago Cubs in the National League Championship Series. Tonight, they're taking on the Cubs again, in what promises to be an exciting matchup. And apparently Mayor de Blasio and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel have a friendly wager riding on this series that'll decide who goes on to the World Series.
