  1. Kinda starting to look a little bit like a second half choke again for the Kitties. It would be nice if they would get some pitching, which they haven’t had in quite awhile. pitching is what takes you to Championships. The good thing about this years choke is that we won’t have to wait until the last game of the year for it to happen. GOTTA GET THE PITCHING!!!!!
