Alex Rodriguez wields the sort of unselfishness that inspires. Others might think of money, of gaudy championship rings, of Madison Avenue appeal. But A-Rod is thinking of Rangers owner Tom Hicks. "I want what's best for Mr. Hicks, if it were down to the Rangers improving or me being happy," he said Wednesday.
"If the Rangers found they could be better off without me, whether now or a year or two down the road, I'd be willing to sit down and talk."
