Alex Rodriguez apparently doesn't want anything to think about once the season ends.

The baseball star and his estranged wife, Cynthia, have called a truce and nipped in the bud what had the potential to be a pretty messy divorce, considering how it all began.

"Cynthia and Alex Rodriguez have amicably resolved their dissolution of marriage proceedings," A-Rod's attorney, Alan Klug, said in a statement to the New York Daily News.

"They deliberately engaged in a private negotiation. This was and remains a personal family matter for both of them."

"All of their decisions were based upon and guided by the best interests of their daughters," Klug added. Alex and Cynthia are parents to Natasha, 3, and Ella, 5 months.

Before the fences were mended, there had been some contention as to the terms of the couple's prenuptial agreement. Rodriguez filed papers in July agreeing with Cynthia's characterization of their marriage as "irretrievably broken" but protesting her objections to the prenup.

In her divorce petition, Cynthia requested ownership of the family's $12 million estate in Coral Gables, Fla., as well as enough spousal and child support to maintain the "high standard of living" she and the girls are used to.

Rodriguez's camp denied "any duty to support Wife beyond those obligations" specifically laid out in the prenup. The All-Star third-baseman, who, as it stands, will not be headed into the postseason with the Yankees this year, had also asked for joint custody of Ella and Natasha.
