Yankees owner George Steinbrenner had said he didn't think he'd bring back Torre unless New York rallied to win the first-round series.

The 77-year-old owner has not spoken publicly since the Game 4 defeat.The Yankees had another major fan letdown in 2004 when the team suffered a meltdown against the Red Sox. The Yankees famously lost four straight games after leading the ALCS 3-0.
