The new MLB playoff system adds a second wild card team this year.  Popular opinion has the New York Yankees in the playoffs as one of the wild cards at the very least, if not as the winner of the AL East.  However, the Tampa Bay Rays, Boston Red Sox, Texas Rangers, and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are all in a position to knock the Yankees out (with the Detroit Tigers getting the AL Central spot).  Many things will have to happen for the Yankees to not make the playoffs, but every single one of these points is possible.
