Torre appeared last night on the "Late Show with David Letterman," fielding questions about whether he might be headed to the Los Angeles Angels or Dodgers.

There have been reports that Torre could be hired to replace Dodgers' skipper Grady Little, who has one year remaining on his contract with a club option for a second year.

Torre told Letterman he's heard the rumors. He says sometimes newspaper reports turn out to be untrue. No official comment from the Dodgers.

Torre managed the Yankees to 12 playoff appearances in as many seasons before turning down a one-year, 5 million dollar offer for next season, with an additional 3 million dollars in incentives, earlier this month.
