07:08 AM ET 05.24 | Even away from the diamond, Alex Rodriguez has had trouble getting his dreams just right. [Rodriguez] is selling his Miami Beach waterfront dream house for $30 million because he believed he was being constantly watched while at home. Sources exclusively tell us the Yankee slugger was often photographed from the water or nearby buildings while he was relaxing indoors or in his infinity pool. We're told A-Rod now plans to build another home with a privacy level similar to his teammate Derek "Philip" Jeter's sprawling compound in Tampa -- possibly closer to his daughters in Coral Gables. The deal for Alex's 20,000-square-foot Miami Beach estate closes [Friday], we're told. The buyers are a "wealthy couple from Palm Beach."

To ARod: Please, find a deserted island, build a **** castle for all I care and then send Hal and Cash your retirement papers and become a recluse for now and forever.
