Knoblauch Surfaces

Knoblauch has been found, and has agreed to speak to the House committee investigating PED use in baseball.

From the NY Post
:

The committee issued a subpoena for Knoblauch last week after he failed to respond to an invitation to testify. Knoblauch originally was to give a deposition Jan. 24, a session that was postponed until Tuesday. Under the new schedule, Knoblauch will give a deposition or transcribed interview Friday.

"We are pleased that Mr. Knoblauch has agreed to voluntarily participate in a transcribed interview or deposition with the committee. As a result, the Committee is withdrawing the subpoena," House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Henry Waxman and ranking Republican Tom Davis said in a statement.

What does Knoblauch even care? It's not like he has a public image to worry about, or a shot to get into the hall. He should just show up and tell the truth. Why risk getting into trouble lying to the feds over this?

Exactly, there is no reason for him to risk getting into trouble. I have no idea why this would be an issue to him.

He's basically been invisible since he retired and can go back to being invisible after the hearing.
