Last time I looked Knoblauch had 22% of the vote, just ahead of the Dazzle Man, Dan Gladden. Chuck left the Twins only to become the most reviled ex-Twin in history. He became a member of the hated Evil Empire. He was pelted with hotdogs, quarters, beer bottles, and God knows what else. But an old newspaper article made me rethink my venomous feelings for him.
I am sure many, if not most of you have seen this a long time ago. But I wonder if enough time has passed that we can forgive and forget. He was a Rookie of the Year, World Series Champion, and is a leader in Runs (140 in 1996), 4th all-time in Stolen Bases (Career), and 3rd all-time in OBP (.391). If he were elected, do you think he would come? What kind of reception could he expect? Would 'Minnesota Nice' triumph over all the hurt feelings and fan bitterness? Enquiring minds (and I) want to know.
