When travel director Jeff Ziegler was scrambling for hotel rooms on Monday night, the players were making their own plans. "We were calling couches in the clubhouse," LHP J.P. Howell said. "I had one, and they said, 'Not enough time (in the big leagues) buddy, you get on the floor.' Trever Miller called me out: 'That couch is mine, kid.' I said, 'Yeah it is.'"
