The control of the senate still is important as the majority party gets to pick who is on which commitee, who the chairs are and they set the voting agenda.

It's also important when it comes to picking judges. The party holding the Senate has a definite influence, even if not a 60/40 majority, on the amount of leeway the President has to select judges for the Circuit Courts, who are enormously influential.
