He's hitting .238 with just one home run over the past seven days, but the last week was even tougher on Alex Rodriguez than the statistics show.
Last weekend in Boston, Red Sox fans (below) greeted the slugger with blonde masks, taunting him over his recent scandalous liaison with stripper Joslyn Noel Morse.
Meanwhile, reports say A-Rod's wife, Cynthia Rodriguez, left their East Side pad with two suitcases, refusing to speak with reporters, after the Stray-Rod scandal broke.
However, Alex and Cynthia (pictured) were seen in Boston together and appeared to be in good spirits the next day.
In an effort to do some damage control, A-Rod wined and dined his better half, who is from the Boston area, and bought her over $6,000 worth of diamonds.
Later, a photographer spotted the couple standing in front of newspapers emblazoned with mocking headlines - and A-Rod and Joslyn Morse in full view.
They giggled as they looked at the front page of the New York Daily News, which also bore a photo of them, and Cynthia cracked, "At least it's a cute picture of us."
Apparently his propensity for seeing Joslyn Noel Morse nude wasn't cause for Cynthia to break up this rock-solid union. Which is good... we think? This is just too weird.
