Jeter, Pettitte, Posada appear on 'Letterman'

Andy Pettitte says on the "Late Show with David Letterman" that winning the World Series is especially gratifying in New York, where missing out on a championship is considered a failure. Pettitte and Yankees teammates Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada appeared on the show Thursday night, a day after capturing the franchise's 27th title. World Series MVP Hideki Matsui later joined them on stage, carrying the championship trophy. Pettitte says he's close to retirement and that pitching one more season "would probably be good," because he wants to spend more time with his kids. Jeter jokes Pettitte has been saying that for about six straight years.
