YES Network "Yankee Classics" against the Royals and "Yankeeography: Yankee Stadium" - This must be a joke

Last week, the YES Network had the genius idea to air a "Yankee Classic" from June 7, 2008
when Johnny Damon went 6-6 with a walk-off hit. As a reminder, this was a game between a mediocre team and a last place team in the middle of June. Now, it has been inducted into a series with classics like the opening day "snow game" in 1996, David Wells' perfect game in 1998, and the World Series in 2001.

Now, they are set to air another "Yankee Classic", this time from July 25 when Joba shut down the Red Sox. Good game? Absolutely. Classic? Definitely not.

I would almost prefer SNY's 3 game rotation of Met classics. Isn't it taking something away from the actual classics? I know, I know, the YES Ultimate Road trip was finally canceled this year and they need to fill the air.

To top it all off, the YES network actually created a "Yankeeography: 1998 Yankees" and is premiering "Yankeeography: Yankee Stadium" this week. You can't make this stuff up.

Can a "Yankeeography: Yankeeography" be too far off? How about "Yankeeography: True Yankees" featuring Michael Kay favorites such as Homer Bush, Clay Bellinger and Andy Fox. The true headliner would be none other than Clutchy McClutch - Scotty Brosius.


Talk about it in the NYYSI Forums!

I’m with MetLife and just wanted to give everyone a heads up that we’re sponsoring a chance to pull the Yankee Stadium countdown lever on September 13th during the Tampa Bay Rays game. You also get four tickets, to meet Joe Girardi and on field access to view batting practice.

It’s free to enter - http://www.metlife.com/General/0,0,19959,00.html?WT.mc_id=cs3773

Best of Luck!
