It's not a particularly well written article, but Kurkjian's "A man born to play behind the plate" at does articulate two of the main reasons Carlton Fisk is a deserving Hall of Famer and one of my favorite players -- though I could never stand to see him in those crappy Chisox unis. That he was one of the best catchers ever is obvious; that he could be abrasive and confrontational while still being in the best tradition of the game, that's the real reason Bosox fans still love him. Well, that and the home run.
