Nick Cafardo: A Cubs-Red Sox World Series? It’s not too early to talk about it

Other teams will have a say about that.

“That’s what sport is all about,” said Hurdle, a philosopher and motivator. “The ability to go out and play on grass. You don’t play on paper. It wasn’t a ‘monster’ until two years ago. There’s a lot of stories that were written over the winter. You’re writing about different players now. It’s a different story in Boston now.

“To compare things in life is one of the most dangerous things you can ever do. Be who you are. Know who you are and like who you are. That will get us to the place where we need to go. We know what kind of market we play in.

“We know what it takes to win baseball games. We believe we can do that against anybody. They haven’t lost that edge. In fact, three [straight] trips to the playoffs and to not make it [last year] left a bitter taste in the mouths of all those men. We have to do something about it and it starts in spring training with work and commitment and this is the only sport where you use the word ‘sacrifice.’ That’s where we are.”
