Drink your Orioles pain away: This Baltimore bar is offering free shots every time Chris Davis gets a hit

A bar in Baltimore is trying to lighten the mood around Orioles first baseman Chris Davis’ historically poor season, with the help of alcohol.  Bartenders Pub at 2218 Boston St. is offering customers free Dr Pepper shooters for every hit Davis gets.

Orioles’ Duquette: ‘We’ve got to put a little bit sharper focus on the future’

Duke says:

“But the way I’ve always looked at it, there’s two ways to look at it. You’re trying to improve your team to be competitive and win now, or you’re trying to improve your team to be competitive for the long-term. And we’ve always tried to be very competitive here during my time here in the present. But it doesn’t look like this 2018 ballclub is going to have what it takes to be that type of contending club. So, we’re faced with the reality of seeing where we can improve it so that we can get back and be that contending club.”

After a competent 2+ week stretch, the Orioles have lost 7 straight and have the worst record in the major leagues. Chris Davis, whom Showalter tapped as the leadoff hitter coming out of spring training, is at .154/.234/.239 and he’s not alone on the team south of the Mendoza line.

OTP 2018 May 21: President takes British royalty to a baseball game, May 15, 1991

The 65-year-old queen, dressed in a below-the-knee blue and red dress, black gloves and three strands of pearls, entered the Orioles dugout along the third base line. She formed a receiving line with her husband and the president, clad in a navy blazer, and Barbara Bush. The first lady wore a blue and white floral print dress.

While the VIP guests took their positions designated by their names on 3-by-5 cards, the song “Brown-Eyed Girl” played over the stadium’s public-address system. Their images appeared on the video screen in right-center field.

“I’ve been playing baseball for 10 years, and I’m used to a normal atmosphere,” said Cal Ripken Jr., the Orioles shortstop, after exchanging handshakes. “This is a lot different. There’s a lot of excitement.”
