And so, Matt Williams is now facing the reality of having to live up to the promise he made to his team earlier this season to reenact his Babe Ruth impression if the Nats won 10 games in a row. Video of Williams addressing questions of when and where it will take place above:
"Timing is ultimately important. So, I wouldn't imagine right now is a proper time. It's probably not appropriate, but in some form or fashion at some point - probably in the privacy of some stadium somewhere, we'll bring it out again. ... I don't know when that will be.
You know, I haven't done it since the last time I did it. But a promise is a promise. And so, at some point, somewhere, I can't tell you when that will be but, at some point..."
The smart money is on tomorrow -- early -- at Nationals Park.
