We’re about to get started with the Alex Rodriguez press conference from the tent behind Steinbrenner Field. This time, there is no single pressing issue for Rodriguez to discuss, this is just an opportunity for him to address the media as a group in an organized setting.

UPDATE, 1:34 p.m.: Alex’s opening statement, “Did anyone watch the Super Bowl?”

UPDATE, 1:37 p.m.: Rodriguez said the past few years, he has been 60 to 70 percent rehab in the offseason, 30 percent training. This winter he was 100 percent training. “It’s been fun getting back to work.”

UPDATE, 1:39 p.m.: “I hear there’s a lot of doubters out there, and that’s always fun.”

UPDATE, 1:40 p.m.: The last few years, Rodriguez said, were not acceptable for him as a hitter.

UPDATE, 1:45 p.m.: Rodriguez said he lost five or six pounds. Called this his regular weight.

UPDATE, 1:49 p.m.: Rodriguez felt some “hesitation” going side to side in the field late last season.
