New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez bought a mansion in Miami Beach that looks a lot like a Crate & Barrel. And now it could be yours for a mere $38 million.

The New York Daily News reports that A-Rod, who paid $24 million in 2010 for the nearly 20,000-square-foot waterfront property when he was dating Hollywood starlet Cameron Diaz, just might get his asking price. Even in this depressed era of real estate.

"The high-end Miami market is out of control right now," said Jorge Alonso, an associate broker at Douglas Elliman Florida. "The Russians and Brazilians are buying like crazy. It's like everyone is racing to buy a trophy house."

Well, if the Russians and Brazilians are moving, we haven't much time! The Daily News is not sure if A-Rod ever actually lived here, partly because he and Diaz broke up before the personal renovations were completed, but the place does have a Major League Baseball player's touches — including a batting cage and a 3,000-square-foot workout room.

The official listing from Sotheby's Real Estate says nothing about Centaur stables, however.

So, aside from star status, what else does this property have that yours (probably) doesn't?

• Nine bedrooms, 11 full bathrooms and two half-baths.

• "Uninterrupted, panoramic views" of the Miami skyline and bay, with 275 feet of waterfront frontage and two boat docks.

• Indoor/outdoor kitchen areas.

• "Zen like" outdoor/indoor living spaces.

• A full home generator, in case of the Zombie Apocalypse.

• A master suite that, by itself, is 2,200 square feet and includes a sitting room, atrium and his and hers bathrooms.

•  A full-size commercial elevator, in case you did own any Centaurs and you wanted them to sleep upstairs.

• 12-foot walls of "impact glass" surrounding the property, fortified by 16 security cameras.

• A home theater.

(Editor's note: A little narrow on the theater room, A-Rod. It's kind of like being in the front row at the cineplex. Good thing there's also a steam room to relax your strained neck.)

• Four-car garage. (Again, a little light on the auto space.)

• Staff quarters.

• A guest house.

• A "vanishing edge" swimming pool. (This feature comes with a built-in joke about A-Rod's declining performance.)

And if you want more photos, here you go.

It wouldn't be a record if someone wanted to pay A-Rod $38 million for the house. Another nearby house, situated on its own island, recently went for $47 million.
