“I’ve always wanted more,” Rodon said Thursday. “We know, it’s the Yankee way.”

At his introductory press conference at Yankee Stadium, Rodon slipped on his new No. 55-striped jersey and eagerly immersed himself in the Bronx World Series or bust-up environment.

“This is expected. That’s what I signed up for, said Rodon, 30, after officially signing a free six-year, $162 million contract to join the Yankees rotation.

“But I think the biggest expectations are mine, not what (the media) or the fans say.”
