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. Baltimore Orioles
The Triple Play
Friday, April 12, 2013
Final Score: 5-2
Yankee Classic Rating (1 low to 10 high): 3

The title says it all. In the top of the eighth with a three-run lead and runners on first and second for the Orioles with no one out, C.C. Sabathia induced Manny Machado into a routine 4-6-5-6-5-3-4 triple play to end the threat and setup what would be a 5-2 Yankee victory. (For those without the ability to sense sarcasm...no it was not routine.)

Other than that one moment, it's not a great game and an odd choice for a "classic." The only other moment worth watching was the play in the previous half inning where the usually sure handed Adam Jones botched a somewhat routine fly ball in deep centerfield off the bat of Vernon Wells. With two outs and the bases loaded, Baltimore's Pedro Strop appeared to get out of the inning unscathed when Wells skied a deep fly ball to Jones in centerfield. Deep enough to make Jones chase it down, but still a very catchable ball for a Gold Glove caliber outfielder.

Instead, Jones muffed the catch and all three runners scored.

Other than that, and watching Mariano Rivera add onto his career setting tally of saves, there's not much else to see that wasn't in the video embedded above. See the full game highlights on MLB.com
