New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is the highest-paid player in Major League Baseball, but he’s definitely not someone you want in the batter’s box when the game’s on the line.

His body language was proof of that in Thursday night’s 3-2 home loss to the Detroit Tigers in Game 5 of the American League Division Series.

So here we are, stuck with a contract that will continue to pay an aging player upwards of $20 million until 2017.

He has compiled a .180 batting average with 12 strikeouts in his last two postseasons, which has caused many fans to forget his 2009 heroics that led the team to a World Series Championship.

Let’s do some shopping and see if we can build a 25-man roster using his $32 million salary, as the Bronx Bombers will not win another ring until his contract is up.
