Missing the playoffs has its benefits.
For Alex Rodriguez, it means more time to woo Madonna... and get together with ex-wife Cynthia Rodriguez and their kids, looking petrified all the way.
His Yankees teammate Derek Jeter, meanwhile, also has some time on his hands to spend romantically – with Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly!
The two have been a rumored couple for months, and there is now no doubt as they were spotted cozying up together in Austin, Texas, last week.
The twosome looked "together and happy," says one onlooker.
Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly also attended the University of Texas football game on Saturday night in Austin, where Friday Night Lights is filmed.
The (extremely good looking) couple also hung out with lying, steroid-using baseball legend Roger Clemens for some reason. Nobody's perfect.
