While Alex Rodriguez bashes meaningless Spring Training homers, Jesus Luz continues to circle the bases with the lovely object of both their affections.
Worse yet for A-Rod, Luz is making an impression with her kids.
While the nurturing of their romance through Kabbalah (and a steamy W mag photo shoot) is generating plenty of celeb gossip heat, there may be another dynamic worth noticing in the affair of hot Brazilian model Jesus Luz and Madonna.
E! Online reports that the pop queen took her 22-year-old paramour to Los Angeles' Kabbalah Center on trendy Robertson Boulevard last Saturday.
While the former Mrs. Ritchie may be making an impression on Jesus Luz, it was Luz taking the time to get to know Madonna's eight-year-old son, Rocco.
"He was playing with Rocco than paying attention to Madonna," a source says, noting that Luz was also seen with Madonna and adopted David Banda.

Daughter Lourdes would be the last in the trifecta of children to impress as he strives to win family favor. Still, her PR peeps deny any romance with Jesus Luz.
"Clichéd as it sounds, they're really just friends," Madge's rep Liz Rosenberg said.
Of course, Rosenberg also vehemently denied Madonna and Guy Ritchie's marriage was in trouble until they divorced. Madonna and A-Rod were allegedly just pals too, until they were clearly getting it on. So basically she's full of it.
Is Madge just using Jesus Luz to make Alex Rodriguez jealous - after he ran home to ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez in the wake of his positive steroid test - or did A-Rod blow his shot? Did he snooze and Luz out to a younger, hotter boy toy?
