Let's Taunt A-Rod

A group of Toronto Blue Jays fans decided to taunt poor A-Rod (Alex Rodriguez) of the New York Yankees Monday night by displaying photos of pop icon Madonna.  A-Rod and Madonna have been romantically linked, though both deny the suggestion.

A-Rod's wife, Cynthia, filed for divorce last week.

Last year, a group of Boston Red Sox fans donned "blonde babe masks" following news that A-Rod was spotted leaving a strip club with a then unidentified blonde.

The New York Yankees third baseman, surrounded by reporters, refused to crack.

Meeting the news media with other All-Stars on Monday at a hotel ballroom, Rodriguez showed no signs of succumbing to the stress of having his personal life splashed on the pages of the New York tabloids.

"Look, everyone has distractions," Rodriguez says. "Everyone has personal issues. Mine are just on the front page of the papers.

"I'm fine with it. You have to deal with that, challenging times. I'm not blaming the media."
