Poor, ridiculously wealthy sports superstars. They just can't seem to break even on their real estate transactions here in Miami. Shaq

recently unloaded his Star Island spread

for $19 million less than his high asking pirce. Now, Alex Rodriguez is following suit by dropping the asking price on his Coral Gables abode by $5 million. 

The house was originally on the market for a cool $14.9 million; the asking price has been reduced to $9.9 million. That's less than the $12 million A-Rod paid for the place in 2004.
