image for Yank's Bernie Williams Tells Steingrabber to Stuff It!
One of Steingrabber's role models

One of the greatest Yankee players of all time was offered a minor league contract by infamous NY Yankee owner-dictator Baron Von Steingrabber. Williams, always the gentleman, declined the tight-wad's offer by stating the obvious: "If they wanted me they would have signed me sooner".

Bernie Williams has numbers that place him in the ranks of Yankee greats like Ruth, Dimaggio and Mantle. Owner-Fuhrer Steingrabber has a record that would incarcerate him comfortably in the company of Genghis Khan, Vlad the Impaler and a genetically engineered Hitler-Stalin-Polpot combo.

When the Baron was asked about snubbing Williams he was germanic as always: "What do you do with an aging Puerto-Rican classical guitar virtuoso? This isn't the San Juan Philharmonic, you know.Loyalty is for suckers! We need to win a World Series. And besides, I miss the days of Billy Ball when we were in the papers day after day with scandals, brawls and bickering. Those were the good, ole days! A true gentleman like Bernie will never get us that kind of press...".
