It's a shame Nieves doesn't have a single MLB caliber trait.  I was against the Pudge signing, especially for the money, but definitely didn't expect his bat to be this bad.  That great start is a long, long way away.  He's still great behind the plate, just no so much when he's standing next to it.  Either Burke or Maldonado would be a much better option than Wil.  They absolutely must put someone else in as the 2nd catcher who can play 2-3 times a week and not kill the team.

I wanted Rod Barajas but only because he was Buck Showalter's boy. Rodriguez never was a work the count hitter now he's another Guzman or worse. They have to address the starting catcher situation in the off season.
