(Newser) – Sounds like Alex Rodriguez is caught between a rock star and a familiar place. The Yankees’ third baseman still loves ex-wife Cynthia, reports the New York Post’s Page Six, but he’s “in awe of Madonna,” says a baseball insider. He’s reportedly asking Cynthia, his “true love and best friend,” to wait out his “obsession.” She'll have to do so alone, though: Madge doesn’t want the Rodriguezes spending any time together.
