What Toronto should have wagered KC on the ALCS

Kansas City Mayor Sly James has promised to send Toronto ribs and BBQ sauce if the Blue Jays beat the Royals in the upcoming ALCS. While speaking from the heart of the now expanded Birds Nest at Nathan Phillips Square, John Tory wagered up craft beer and casually concluded his talk with a Bautista-style bat flip -- apparently it's the new mic drop.

The seven-game ALCS is already a tense one, as the winner will move on to the World Series. But perhaps we could have upped the ante with an offer a little more exciting than local craft beer -- though Tory's (two) bat flips into the reflecting pool seemed to add a nice touch to his early afternoon announcement.

We asked our Twitter followers what they'd wager in the series. Unsurprisingly, many opted to offload some of Toronto's politicians and transit woes to our neighbours down south. While we can't give up people or major pieces of infrastructure, read up on some alternative options below.
