The Rays are back in first place!

But does it matter?

Since the Rays were first knocked out of first place by the New York Yankees in late June, its been a two horse race and now it is clearly evident that both teams will make the playoffs and its likely that they will face off in the ALCS. So does it matter who wins the division?

If you are a Yankee fan, you really shouldn't care. The only thing that matters to NYY fans is winning the world series so if they were to just get the wild card, its no big deal as long as they win the pennant. 

If you are a Rays fan, it is very important. The Tampa Bay Rays are in their third year as a winning ball club which means the more banners they raise the better. and the AL East is such a prize for the Rays that winning the division is an absolute must for Tampa Bay.
