The Boss continues to make threats, send messages


In the wake of telling Joe Torre he’s all but doomed unless the Yankees go on a miraculous playoff run, George Steinbrenner continued on his rampage this afternoon, sending bizarre ultimatums throughout the
organization.  Here’s a look at some of the more entertaining messages.

Boss to Cashman:  "Shave the combover or your fired."

Boss to Mussina:  "Put that crossword away and look excited or I’ll shred that Stanford degree."

Boss to Mattingly:  "Grow that damn mustache back."

Boss to Guidry:  "Just give your mustache to Mattingly."

Boss to Steinbrenner:  "Enough talking through Rubenstein."

Boss to Costanza:  "Get back in my office, I wasn’t done yet, and where is my god damn calzone?!"

Boss to Hal:  "You’ll have nothing and like it."

Boss to Duncan:  "Stop eating Matsui’s helmets and stop asking me to give you a piggyback."

Boss to Giuliani:  "I decree you the Mayor of New York City so we can win a championship."

Boss to Cashman again:  "And if I find you hiding in Torre’s nose, you’re also fired."

Boss to Veras and Ohlendorf:  "Who are you?"

Boss to Wang:  "Me So Horny."

Boss to Steve Swindal:  "Start billing to the Underhills or it’s your ass, the tab is closed."
