As if the Alex Rodriguez saga wasn't enough of a joke already.

Rapper Drake hosted "Saturday Night Live" and took on the Yankees third baseman's current situation -- which, if you've been trapped in traffic on the George Washington Bridge for the past year, involves numerous lawsuits in an effort to overturn a 162-game suspension for alleged performance-enhancing drug use.

The A-Rod portion of the SNL cold open starts around the 1:45 mark of the video below.
