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. New York Mets
Ventura's Wins it with HR in 10th
Friday, June 14, 2002
Final Score: 4-2, 10 inn.
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 4
Another Yankee-Mets regular season game. By now the series between the two New York teams had lost it's lustre and this is a rather unmemorable game. Armando Benitez blows a 2-1 lead with two out in the ninth when a Derek Jeter single scores Marcus Thames with the tying run. Then Robin Ventura hits a two-run home run in the top of the tenth to win it. A Benitez blown save is so common in the Yankees-Mets matchup, that occurance alone fails to qualify it as memorable and the game is fairly boring. While it is always fun to watch Mets fans squirm a little, the series had become so tatty by then and irrelevant by now, even that bit of fun doesn't really translate this game into a classic.
