The Yankees are out of the playoffs for the first time since 1993, but the prolific A-Rod is still circling the bases. If you know what we're talking about.
We're talking about having sex.
Almost immediately after announcing her divorce from Guy Ritchie, Madonna and Alex Rodriguez "are definitely romantic," a pair of sources confirm.
"Guy is not involved in this equation," the insider said. "With or without A-Rod, Madonna and Guy haven't been 'together' for over a year - they have been privately separated. Madonna, however, wanted to finish her world tour before divorcing."
"A-Rod and Madonna are more involved than ever. Alex really missed spending time with Madonna. However, he understands the position Madonna's in."
Having just divorced Cynthia Rodriguez, we're sure he does.
The source says six days ago that Madonna - who dined with Rodriguez October 2 at Dos Caminos in New York City - "has agreed to be discreet about her relationship with A-Rod until her tour ends and a divorce is announced."
Madonna has been linked to Rodriguez since early July when celebrity gossip tabloids reported that he had been making late-night visits to her Central Park West pad in New York - including the same night his second child was born.
Around that time, Cynthia Rodriguez filed for divorce because of Alex's alleged affairs with Joslyn Morse, Alicia Marie, Candice Houlihan, etc.
Madonna vehemently denied any sort of fling with the Rod, but Cynthia's attorney said she had an "affair of the heart" with the baseball player.
