It's finally happened: Alex Rodriguez's absurd salary has reached the level of parody. This season, A-Rod will be making more than an entire team, specifically the perennially awful Houston Astros. This reminds us of the time Babe Ruth was criticized for making more than President Herbert Hoover -- his response was that he "had a better year" than Hoover did. Rodriguez will likely miss most of this season, but given what the Astros' typical season looks like, we think he should probably go with Ruth's answer.
