It does indeed appear to be down a little bit on both fastballs (Warning not my classifications).

Is this graph, showing the change in Niese's pitch usage throughout the season, too busy to read?

Bumgardner's usage of the slider/cutter by count has also changed: massive usage in 2 ball counts compared to 2010
