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. Tampa Bay Rays
Jeter Gets #3,000
Saturday, July 9, 2011
Final Score: 5-4
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 8

In a rare twist, a milestone game that actually holds up as a very re-watchable game. Obviously, this is the game where Derek Jeter not only nabbed career hit #3,000, but did so in dramatic fashion, going 5-for-5, with a home run as #3,000, against Rays' staff ace and 2010 Cy Young runner-up David Price. Oh, yeah. He also provided the eventual game winning hit in the bottom of the eighth, topping off a late Yankee comeback. I'd say that's a pretty good day.

Reaching the milestone would also seem to lift a burden off Derek's shoulders, as he would go on to turn around his season and look rejuvenated. Prior to this Saturday afternoon, Derek was having a pedestrian year with a .257 average, .649 OPS and 22RBI. From July 9th on, Derek hit .338 with a .843 OPS and 39 RBI.
