One of the Yes Network's most aired shows are their Yankee Classics.  Generally, during the regular season on off days and mornings before a game when there was none the day before, you can catch the Yankees Classics.  Then they fill up a lot of the schedule with them during the off-season.  As a Yankee fan, I think it's a great idea, although the ranking of some games as "Classics" can sometimes be questions.

Well, this is an attempt to log as many of the Yankee Classics that have been shown including some commentary and rankings on whether they really are classics or...not so much.

Regular Season vs. Boston Red Sox
Joba Shuts Down the Red Sox
Friday, July 25, 2008
Final Score: 1-0
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 2
Not quite a classic unless you're a fan of pitching duels.  If so, then this one is right up your alley and you can add 5 or 6 points to my rating.  Other than some quality pitching, there's not much else of note in this game.  In fact, my favorite highlight came on the only run of the game where the "Giambi Shift" turned an inning ending grounder to short, into an RBI single...since the shortstop (Jed Lowrie) was playing somewhere on the wrong side of second base.  Personally, I think those extreme defensive shifts are useless and love any opportunity to expose them as so.  This was a sweeter case than usual.  But is it a reason to "relive" this game.  Probably not.
