Does It Matter If The Yankees Win The Division?

With our New York Yankees opening a three-game series tonight against the Tampa Bay Rays here is a question for you to ponder this morning, my loyal Pinstripe Alley subjects.

Does it make a difference whether the Yankees win the AL East, or whether the Rays -- just a half game behind entering tonight's play -- overtake them and the Yankees end up as the wild-card team?

It would be nice to win the AL East, but it's pretty obvious the Yankees are going to the playoffs regardless of whether or not they win the division. So, does it matter?

Vote in the poll and let us know how you feel?
