Chuck Knoblauch: MIA

A hat tip to Peter Abraham who just posted about this on his blog.

Well remember yesterday, when it was reported that Chuck Knoblauch had been issued a subpoena? Well now it seems the feds can't find him.

From ESPN:
WASHINGTON -- Former major leaguer Chuck Knoblauch had not been tracked down as of early Wednesday evening by federal marshals trying to serve him a subpoena from a House panel investigating steroids in baseball, a committee staffer told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because staffers were not authorized to make public comments on the matter.

Knoblauch, a four-time All-Star who played for the Yankees, Twins and Royals from 1991-02, originally was asked to appear Thursday for what was supposed to be the first of five depositions or transcribed interviews scheduled by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

When the committee didn't hear from Knoblauch or a representative, it issued a subpoena to force the 1991 AL Rookie of the Year to submit to a deposition next Tuesday.

As of 7 p.m. Wednesday, though, that subpoena had not reached the former infielder who, like Clemens and more than 80 other players, was accused of using performance-enhancing drugs in last month's Mitchell Report on baseball's steroids era

The next time we see Chuck it'll be in a high-speed chase while being driven by Al Cowlings in a white Ford Bronco.

But seriously, what the hell is wrong with this guy? Just go to Congress, answer the questions and then you can disappear into obscurity. By avoiding, or running away from the situation, he's only going to get himself into a much bigger problem.
