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
Marcus Thames Walk-off vs. Papelbon
Monday, May 17, 2010
Final Score: 11-9
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 8
This is what classics are about.  While not exactly a milestone game, it was a see-saw affair with a lot of action.  The Yankees gradually took an early 5-0 and 6-1 lead against Daisuke Matsuzaka, but Phil Hughes was just as bad, gradually squandering the lead, but leaving after five with a 7-5 Yankee advantage. After a Victor Martinez home run in the 6th off Boone Logan, the Red Sox scored three times in the eighth off Chan Ho Park (yep, still sends shivers up my spine, too) to go up 9-7.  Boston took that lead into the ninth, which they entrusted to closer Jonathan Papelbon.  With one-out, Alex Rodriguez connected on a two-run home run to tie the game. After a two-out hit-by-pitch of Francisco Cervelli, Marcus Thames ended it with a home run into the left field seats off Papelbon.

Lots of home runs, lead changes and a dramatic finish...yep, that qualifies as a classic in my book.
