Just rolled into the Derek Jeter press conference. There are spots at the table for Jeter, Joe Girardi, Brian Cashman, Hal Steinbrenner, Hank Steinbrenner, Felix Lopez and Jennifer Steinbrenner-Swindal.

I’ll update this post as the main event gets going.

Hank’s name card was taken off the table just minutes before this thing started.

Cashman: “He never left. We didn’t want him going anywhere.”

Girardi: “He is a true Yankee.”

Jeter: “I had never planned on going anywhere.”

Jeter called the situation “uncomfortable” and said he was “angry” about how public the negotiations became.

“It was not an enjoyable experience,” he said.

On questions about his age: “I’m getting older, but so is everyone else in this room.”
