Atilano is nibbling for sure and the pitches are on him, but watching Nieves catch the day after Pudge, it is obvious how different the two catchers game calling skills are.  It seems like Nieves has the pitchers nibble so much more, while Pudge has guys going after the hitters.

Yup.  It seems like Pudge got the message when he came to DC - Riggleman is going to have a better defensive team.  Wil on the other hand, I guess he's seen how bad our defense has been over the years, wants our staff to nibble so they can strike batters out.
