TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - Derek Jeter doesn’t agree with Yankees’ co-chairman Hank Steinbrenner’s comment about a lack of hunger on the team last season.

Steinbrenner said Monday that some of the players were “too busy building mansions and doing other things” after winning the 2009 World Series.

Jeter was having a multimillion dollar home built last year, when New York lost in the AL championship series to Texas after fading in the second half of the season and winding up with the AL wild card.

Jeter said Tuesday he understands most of Steinbrenner’s comments, but “the house, I didn’t understand. That’s a first. That’s funny, I think. I’m not moving, so we won’t be talking about this again.”
