Division Championship Or Wildcard: Does It Matter?

One way or another, it's starting to look like the Rays are a lock for the 2010 postseason. But as the AL East Division champions or as the Wildcard team, and does it matter? The folks at Pinstripe Alley, a New York Yankees blog, posted a poll and their fans seem to think so, to a pretty overwhelming degree. I'd have to say I concur; with the AL losing this year's all-star game, the AL Wildcard has no hope of having home field advantage in any series. And while the big picture focus is just getting into the postseason and taking care of business afterward, it's definitely a tougher task without the possibility of having a Game 7 at home. In my opinion, anyway. What do you think?
