Weekly Top Ten Real Estate Hot List Tue: 10-23-2012
Is age starting to nibble at third baseman Alex Rodriguez’ superstar status, or has he been caught up in the postseason stress watching the disintegration of the New York Yankees? With players dropping like flies from injuries, the team has been caught in a downward spiral with general manager Brian Cashman scurrying to fill vacant positions. But A-Rod hasn’t been injured, so what is the reason for his current meltdown? In fact he’s played so poorly this season that Cashman has been very open about entertaining trade offers. Cashman thinks that age is catching up to A-Rod. If age is the problem, maybe someone should have thought of that prior to signing him to a 10-year $275 million dollar contract with half still to go. Cashman claims he’s not shopping for a replacement, but certainly isn’t going to be slamming any phones down to offers! Sportscasters can’t stop talking about it being time for Alex to move on to another team where he can start enjoying the game again. The consensus of opinion on the subject says that even with a complete turnaround, in the eyes of Yankee fans, Rodriguez will never be a superstar again. Coming in at number 13 in ESPN’s 50 Greatest Yankees (of all time), Rodriguez has already been at the top in his career and should be enjoying thoughts of the future in other areas like walking away with fists full of cash when his waterfront estate in Miami Beach sells!
Right up there with the best Miami Beach has to offer, A-Rod is selling his lush contemporary waterfront home with views west across Biscayne Bay to the City of Miami skyline. The mouthwatering manse of 20,000 square feet has 9 bedrooms, 12 baths amid a plethora of creature comforts and amenities. The home has 275’ of water frontage and is one of the most expensive homes for sale in South Florida at $38 million.
