In the Sunday Conversation video above, Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter discusses his impressions of the 2011 Red Sox and has an interesting answer to a question from interviewer Karl Ravech on whether the Red Sox pursued him this offseason. If you remember, Jeter was a free agent and negotiations between he and the Yankees tuned a little sour before a deal was finally struck.

Check out the video above and the transcript below and decide for yourself whether he was just having some fun or if there was a hint of truth to his remarks. Leave your take in the comments section of this blog entry.

Ravech: "[The Red Sox] apparently went after Mariano [Rivera this offseason]. Why didn't they go after Jeter?"

Jeter: "How do you know?"

Ravech: "Did they?"

Jeter (with a smile): "I wouldn't even answer that question. But, like I said, [New York] is the only place I wanted to play."
