Alex Rodriguez

Half a Billion to Blow and

His Best Purchase Ever Was ...

Alex Rodriguez may not be playing baseball, but he's still got a crap ton of money to play with -- during his year-long suspension -- which makes this video of him totally shocking and, dare we say it ... sweet.

A-Rod's last 2 contracts alone give him more than half a BILLION dollars to spend (before taxes, of course) -- so when we got him yesterday in Venice, we had to know: What's the dumbest thing he ever bought?

Watch the vid ... he struggled to come up with an answer, but then dropped a surprising gem. Guarantee, it's the last thing you'd expect him to say.

Oh, and A-Rod was walking out of Gold's Gym with his gf Torrie Wilson -- so, at least he's staying in shape. Naturally. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

What does that mean, staying in shape " naturally"? Does that mean you think you can just take a few injections and NOT work out and still benefit from the steroids? I guess you guys don't mind looking ignorant if it means getting your stupid little joke in at the end

People it's funny, after the lock out(1994) the MLB need a jump, they knew players where doing it and didn't stop them because it was making money.( Sosa and mark) only after they started making money again and players pass there prime in that era they acted to clean up the game.
