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. Minnesota Twins
Rivera Sets the Record
Monday, September 19, 2011
Final Score: 6-4
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 7

Mariano Rivera becomes the all-time saves leader, passing Trevor Hoffman and picking up career save #602. It wasn't a particularly interesting game and once the Yankees got the lead, the fans were anxious to simply see both teams make quick outs and get to the ninth were the main attraction would arrive at the mound to make history.

Fans weren't disappointed as Mariano closed out the Twins in classic Mariano style...quickly and seemingly easily on a weak grounder, a non-threatening fly ball to right and a three pitch strikeout of Twins rookie Chris Parmelee.

The first 8-1/2 innings are just a footnote which can be a problem with Yankee Classics, but convenient for YES.  This game is a four-hour broadcast, but the only thing the fans might want to tune in for is the finale, which comes around the 3-1/2 hour mark.  There is a nice, complete post-game however, which is uncommon with many Yankee Classics broadcasts.
