The Question: Are the Yankees in trouble?

Tuesday night's loss to the Tigers was the Yankees' 12th in 18 games. In that span, they've seen a double-digit lead in the American League East whittled down to 4 1/2 games over Baltimore, with Tampa Bay very much in the picture six games back. New York is dealing with some significant injuries, and the current edition of the Yankees doesn't look much like the one that was so dominant in June and much of July.

So we want to know: are the Yankees in trouble? Is there now a real chance they could not win the AL East?
