i like this part:
"There's a resiliency about us," Lo Duca said, watching Reyes, Carlos Beltran and reliever Guillermo Mota jump and dance in a giddy clubhouse circle. "We never give up. But we know we haven't done anything yet. This is just our first step. We've got two more steps to go."
A resiliency, a determination. Yeah, but an innate confidence, too.
And why not? They absorb the other team's best blow and shrug it off like nothing ever happened. They get contributions from up and down the lineup (nine different players had hits in Game 3, and nine different players scored a run). They go down two key starters before the series even begins, and they sweep it anyway. They're a hitting machine. They're the Robocops of these playoffs, deflecting bullets and cleaning up the streets.
