time-honored tradition between top city politicians is underway. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner is placing a friendly wager with his counterpart, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

When the Braves lose (manifest!), Bottoms will don an Astros jersey, a city press release notes. She will also send Turner some award-winning peach cobbler from the historic Paschal's restaurant, a case of Mayor Bottoms' favorite Cherry Coke Zero, beer from Best End Brewing Company, and a hammer from Home Depot in honor of Atlanta's home run hero Hammering "Hank" Aaron.

Should the Astros lose, the City of Houston will send Mayor Bottoms Brisket Fried Rice and Pork Ribs from Blood Brother's BBQ (lucky), a case of "H-Town Pils" beer from St. Arnold's Brewery, and tamales and lemonade from Irma's Original.

Perish the thought, but Mayor Turner will also sport a Braves jersey.

The friendly wager was announced via Instagram Live on October 26, to learn more visit CultureMap.com

Who is actually determining how much Jose Abreu is playing right now? Is it Joe Espada or is someone telling him from the top of the organization to play Abreu and not take him out of clutch moments?

Also, could Espada be sending a message to the front office by giving them a good look at how bad he is, and how much he's hurting the team with regular playing time?

ESPN Houston's Jeremy Branham makes that case in the video above, but his radio partner Joel Blank isn't quite buying it.
