The Red Sox played at 11AM yesterday morning after an ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game the night before. As a marquee team they have a lot more night games on getaway days than other teams and thus get less rest than other teams do too. Of course, this is all just a matter of degree. All major league players are subject to some weird hours that don’t flow naturally with one’s body clock.
Boston has done something about it. John Farrell was on SiriusXM/MLB Network Radio today with Mike Ferrin and Kevin Kennedy and they had an interesting discussion about the team doing sleep studies, and building a “sleep room,” to better help players with rest and keeping their energy level up. Give a listen:
Hey, when you ban greenies, you gotta do something.
Seriously, though. Very cool comments from Farrell and a cool idea by the Red Sox.
Any edge you can get.
