From Stan's episode guide:

"The Opposite"

Starting with this episode, Larry David supplies the voice of George Steinbrenner. Steinbrenner is only seen from the back. Steinbrenner's back is occasionally played by Larry David or actor Lee Bear.

I guess I was wrong, Larry occasionally plays him physically too. I think the obvious reason why they only show his back is that they couldn't find anyone that looks like him and it would like kinda stupid with Larry doing his voice, it would look too obviously dubbed.

steinbrenner: Let me ask you something, George. You having any personal problems at home? Girl trouble, love trouble of any kind?

george: No sir?!

steinbrenner: What about drugs? You doing some of that crack cocaine? You on the pipe?

george: No sir?!

steinbrenner: Are you seeing a psychiatrist? Because I got a flash for you young man, you're non compos mentis! You got some bats in the belfry!

george: What're you talking about?

steinbrenner: GI've read this report. It's very troubling, very troubling indeed. It's a sick mind at work here.
Okay, come on boys, come on in here. George, this is Herb and Dan.
They're gonna take you away to a nice place where you can get some help. They're very friendly people there. My brother-in-law was there for a couple of weeks. The man was obsessed with lactating women. They completely cured him, although he still eats a lot of cheese.

george: Ah, see, Mister. I didn't write that report! hat, that's not mine!

steinbrenner: Of course you didn't George. Of course you didn't write it.

george: I didn't do it! It..It just got done. I don't know how it got done, but it did.

steinbrenner: Of course. Of course it got done. Things get done all the time, I understand.
Don't worry, your job'll be waiting for you when you get back. Get better George! Get betteeerrr!!!!
