It's unclear where he was between the 22nd and the 24th, when he missed three games in Chicago against the White Sox. During that time, Madonna premiered her documentary about Malawi with loads of Kabbalah propaganda on April 23 at the Tribeca Film Festival. A-Rod rejoined the Yankees on April 25 in Cleveland.
Then Rodriguez attended Madonna's half-hour promotional show at the Roseland Ballroom in New York on April 30.
But no one's mentioned that just the day before, April 29, the Yankees placed A-Rod on the 15-day disabled list. It was the first time he'd been on such a list since the year 2000.
Also on April 29: Ritchie took the kids to the "Speed Racer" premiere in London.
On the night of Madonna's show, where Ritchie was absent, the Yanks without A-Rod lost to the Tigers 6-2.
What was A-Rod's injury? A grade 2 groin pull that occurred during a game against Baltimore on the 20th. He went back to work, but exacerbated the injury to the point where he couldn't play. It was so bad that Rodriguez actually didn't rejoin the team until May 20, when the Yanks lost to Baltimore 12-1.
