Girardi said he already faced a tough decision just prying Jeter out of the game.
"That's not easy either,'' he said, "but you could see that he was limping pretty good. Derek is one of the toughest players I've ever been around, and you know what he told me: 'I'm great.' That's what he always tells me…You know, he understood. He never wants to come out. He could have two legs that were broken and wouldn't want to come out of the game."
