Alex Rodriguez

Major Shrinkage In Miami

Alex Rodriguez  -- who signed a $275 million contract with the Yankees in 2007 --  is now pinching pennies by downsizing in a spectacular way.

A-Rod -- who dumped his $30 million oceanfront Miami palace --  just bought a nearby condo for $2.1 million -- around 15 times cheaper than his previous digs.

And when we say it's modest, we mean it. The "luxury" condo, purchased last month, is 1,725 sq. ft with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms -- a broom closet in ARod's world.

The Miami mansion was a comfortable 19,861 sq. ft., with 9 bedrooms, 11 full bathrooms (plus 2 half bathrooms), a 4-car garage, a state of the art security system with 16 cameras, and a Zen garden.

A-Rod appears to be gearing up for a long winter in an uncertain future.

We'd say it sucks to be him ... but it still doesn't.

What still goes unspoken, as he lives in a world of wealth, is the STATS that all these cheats ****ed up.The Hall of Fame is a joke ; for every major "holder" of a stat has cheated his way to the top in most cases, how can you sort out the mess? GOOD LUCK!!! As the "Home Run King" himself was a steroid user. A corked bat seems silly now, also knowing they did nothing for a persons game.

7 of the bedrooms in the mansion remained empty from the time he bought the place. 6 of the bathrooms had their toilet seals corrode from non usage. The pool was used twice in the whole time he owned it. He never watched movies in the theater. He never used the barbecue area. So I ask, downsizing to a place that he might actually use the floor space is a bad thing? Whether its Arod, or Jennifer Aniston, or any other Holywood celeb, they all buy monstrosities that do not get used. Why are single people or married couples living in a 7 bedroom home? Don't give me the overnight visitors crap either or the family member that visits for a weekend. You don't need 6 extra bedrooms for that.

Really?!    

TMZ, he sold his last house for reportedly $30 million... you guys reported on it, along with other sites, and stated that he made a $15 million profit. Stop being losers. This is not the first time he has lived in an apartment/condo. Again, stop being losers.

House is the basic requirement of people . But now a days due to day to day increase in population , the re is huge demand of property in Certain areas. Which gives

rise to increase in Property cost. If it will be cost all then many people will able to buy a house who are actually needy....
