Possibly Drunk Ex-Yankee Chuck Knoblauch Called Ex-Teammate Mike Stanton A ‘Fairy’ & Attacked Geoff Blum

Last night, the Houston Astros were in Atlanta taking on the Braves and absolutely dismantling them to the tune of a 16-4 blowout win.

48-year-old former New York Yankee Chuck Knoblauch was apparently watching the same game and heard something on the local Houston broadcast that really upset him. So he went on Twitter and blasted the Astros’ announcers.

First, he attacked Astros’ broadcaster Geoff Blum for saying something he didn’t like. Problem is, Blum wasn’t even calling the game as he was on vacation.


Knoblauch quickly realized he attacked the wrong person, and that it was fill-in Mike Stanton, his former Yankees teammate, who drew Knoblauch’s ire.

The likely reason for these series of tweets were explained by Chron.com, who seem to know why Knoblauch may have been so upset.

“Knoblauch and Stanton were teammates with the Yankees for four seasons and won three world championships together.

Knoblauch’s tweets came in the eighth inning, and the only thing Stanton said that could be considered even close to controversial came when he and Astros’ play-by-play man Todd Kalas were discussing comparisons between the Astros’ Carlos Correa and a young Alex Rodriguez.

“If Correa can come anywhere close to the numbers that Alex Rodriguez put up – and yes, there’s questions about how he got there, but the numbers are the numbers, and they are spectactular,” Stanton said on the broadcast.

Rodriguez has admitted to using steroids from 2001 to 2003.

Knoblauch might be sensitive to the issue, because he also was linked to performance-enhancing drugs during his 12-year big-league career. He was included in the 2007 Mitchell Report as a player who used Human Growth Hormone (HGH). After his career was over, Knoblauch admitted to using HGH, but said it didn’t help him on the field.”
