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
Raul Ibanez Leads Comeback vs. Boston
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Final Score: 4-3, 12 inn.
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 5

In a tight pennant race with only two games remaining, the last thing the Yankees wanted to do was lose to Boston who was finishing up a miserable season.  However, it looked like that might be the case as Jon Lester and a crowd of relievers kept the Yankees offense at bay as Boston took a 3-1 lead into the ninth.

Boston brought on closer Andrew Bailey who immediately surrendered a single to Curtis Granderson followed by a dramatic two-run pinch hit HR by Raul Ibanez to tie the game.  The Yankees actually loaded the bases later in the inning with one out and the fourth and fifth hitters due up, but as was the 2012 Yankees way, both Teixeira and Cano failed to plate the winning run.

That would have to wait until the 12th when Raul Ibanez singled to left to plate the winning run and reducing the Yankee magic number to one over Baltimore.
