AROUND THE WEB:

— When the Red Sox players return to Fenway Park this spring, they will find some major improvements to their team nap room.

The 145-square-foot sleep area is undergoing renovations after the Red Sox reached a deal with custom-made bedding company Bedgear this season. The room will now be equipped with performance bedding, including cool-vented pillows. It will also have oak floors, exposed brick and more beds.

“Every little edge you can get on your competition, if it’s one game or even an extra out, it matters,” Red Sox head athletic trainer Brad Pearson told the Boston Globe. “We’re always looking for ways to get better. This is one way.”

“How many hours can I sleep without waking up, that is the big thing for me,” Hanley Ramirez said. “It changes the way you play. It’s unbelievable. When you’re young you don’t think about stuff like that.”

Players tested mattresses and were fitted for pillows during spring training last week. They were also able to select their own luxury sheets and blankets.

The upgraded sleep room will be ready by Opening Day.
