    Except these days, I never hear Fisk referred to as Pudge, Rodriguez almost always is, which doesn't seem fair.

    At least Albert Pujols gets it. He doesn't want to be called "El Hombre", because Stan Musial is "The Man". Rodriguez apparently isn't bothered by the fact he appropriated his nickname. To be fair, Rodriguez didn't nickname himself as far as I know, but still. If he must be Pudge, he should be "Pudge Light", or maybe "PED Pudge" or something.
    of course "the man" is a slightly more honorable name compared to pudge.

    Is "Pudge" a common nickname for catchers?

    And if so, why? (I've heard of two with that nickname - Ivan Rodriguez and Carlton Fisk)
