Jeter supports A-Rod

SI.com's Jimmy Traina spoke with Derek Jeter and asked him about his relationship with Alex Rodriguez. The entire interview will go live tomorrow on Hot Clicks.

"I'm just curious as to why people keep asking the same questions over and over. We've been down this road before. Alex is a teammate. I support him. Our whole team is behind him. We all support him. And we're looking forward to a new season. To be quite honest with you, it's old hearing the same questions. It's something that's been addressed before in the past. Everyone's moved beyond it. And it doesn't really need to be addressed again."

Jeter also had this to say about the Yankees' high expectations entering the 2009 season:

"I don't know how you can say 'more' pressure because every year we're expected to win a championship. That's the bottom line. So I don't know how you could have 'more' pressure than winning it all, you know what I mean? So every year, it's the same expectations for us and that won't change."
So there you have it. I wouldn't have expected Jeter to say anything that would cause a stir.
