Does best record mean much in the playoffs?

This is the ninth time since 1998 that the Yankees have finished with the best record in the American League. What’s that meant in the past? A little bit of everything.

1998: Won the World Series
1999: Won the World Series
2002: Lost in the ALDS
2003: Lost in the World Series
2004: Lost in the ALCS
2006: Lost in the ALDS
2009: Won the World Series
2011: Lost in the ALDS
2012: ???

That’s three championships and one American League pennant. It’s also three first-round exits and an championship series letdown.
