know a lot of people question defensive metrics out in the field (is something being biased by groundball or flyball pitchers, righties/lefties, etc.) but I'm genuinely curious what basis anyone would have to conclude that Fisk was a better defensive catcher than Carter.
When it comes to athlete's murdering their girlfriends, OJ is the obvious leader in the clubhouse.
I believe Bill James a long time ago went on record as saying that if handling pitchers in a game could be quantified Fisk would definitely move up. Young catchers, even Bench and Berra, come up with a big learning curve ahead of them, but Fisk even when he was young had a rep for being savvy and knowing how to call a game and how to handle pitchers. I think that would be the case for Fisk having extra on defense compared to some other great catchers.
What do you think Sutton and Neikro might have to say to Reggie at the next HoF dinner/induction ceremony they attend?
impossible for him to imagine him killing them with his bare hands because he was so compulsive about cleanliness.
