Well, as far as I have understood it, the term "Pennant" in baseball has always and will always refer to a league championship. You with the AL ppennent by winning the ALCS. The NL Pennant by winng the NLCS. And you win a championship/title/ring by winning the WS and defeating the other league's champion.
Division winners are usually referred to having won "Division Titles" not pennants. If some websites are allowing for a looser definition that is up to them. In baseball, I have never heard anyone refer to the Yankees as pennant winners in 2005. Now we could get silly and say something like AL East pennant winners or 1997 Wildcard pennent winners, but that is just really silly imo.
I don't need to.
I am right.

In Major League Baseball, the American League Championship Series (ALCS), played in October, is a playoff round that determines the winner of the American League pennant. The winner of the series advances to play the winner of the National League Championship Series in baseball's championship, the World Series. It began in 1969, when the American League was reorganized into two divisions, East and West. The winners of each division played each other in a best-of-five series to determine who would advance to the World Series. In 1985, the format changed to best-of-seven.
