Chan Ho Park had a bad Opening Day last week but has since bounced back. In the video below — which somehow stayed secret for a week — Chan Ho explains the problem.
Laugh all you want — and Mariano Rivera and friends seem to be doing plenty of that — but I prefer the honesty over “we just gotta play them one day at a time” garbage.

The Royals recalled infielder Ramon Torres from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday. He didn’t get into a game until starting Thursday night’s game against the Rangers, batting ninth.
In the top of the second inning, facing Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Torres laced a single up the middle. Center fielder Delino DeShields charged in on it, attempting to keep Ryan Goins at second base, but the ball went right past his glove, through his legs, and nearly trickled all the way to the warning track. Goins scored easily and Torres was waved home, too. He managed to narrowly beat the throw, touching home plate with his left hand on a head-first slide.
The play was officially scored a single and a three-base error. Torres wasn’t credited with an RBI on the play. But at least the Royals got two runs out of it.
