Knoblauch Wants You Off His Lawn

The New York Times has tracked down Chuck Knoblauch to get his comments about all things Mitchell. His comments about steroids and the Mitchell Report are pretty straight forward, but the other things he has to say reveal that he's none too pleased about being dragged back into the public eye:

“I’ve got nothing to do with any of that, I mean, any baseball . . . And I don’t want anything to do with baseball . . . I love baseball, but I’m not trying to get a job in baseball. I don’t have any friends from baseball. Baseball doesn’t control my life anymore . . . Don’t tell anybody where I live."

He then sprayed the garden hose at the reporter, but the stream of water badly missed the mark.

Knoblauch sounds a lot like me circa 2006. I know why I wanted the whole sport to sink into the La Brea tarpits, I wonder what's eating Chuck.

I assume most players don't take criticism too seriously, but given how loud and frequent the "Knoblauch sucks" sentiment came -- and how quickly it followed the "Knoblauch is God" sentiment in Minnesota -- if anyone was going to be affected, it would be him.
