Bye, Bye, Cali

lc03.jpgThe Phillies just completed a seven-game stretch through Southern California.

Now it’s back to the East Coast and Citi Field in Flushing.

Three games at Petco Park in the Gaslamp Quarter …

Four games at Dodger Stadium at Chavez Ravine …

Three games at Citi Field next to a bunch of chop shops …

Citi Field doesn’t have quite the same charm as Petco and Dodger Stadium, I’m afraid. So I leave California with a heavy heart, knowing there are no more In-N-Out lunches and appearances from D-List celebrities like Lauren Conrad to entertain me in my immediate future … unless I run into one of the Real Housewives of New York this week.

A New High? Or A New Low?

lc 01.jpgWhen you come to The Zo Zone, I like to think that you expect a few things from me: news … analysis … all the information you need to get your daily Phillies fix. Well, this post has absolutely nothing to do with the Phillies … other than the Phillies are playing the Dodgers today at Dodger Stadium.

Lauren Conrad threw out the first pitch today. I happened upon her (some might say stalked, but I think you have to prove such things in a court of law) and snapped a photo with the rest of the paparazzi behind home plate. I honestly can say I’ve never watched an episode of The Hills or Laguna Beach, but I know she’s famous and I know I took a picture of her (which I texted to my sister back in Wisconsin to make me feel a little less creepy about what I had just done).

P.S. I saw Larry King before the game, but a picture of LC just made more sense to me.

Victorino Said Hip Is Fine

Shane Victorino said his left hip is fine, but he isn’t in the lineup tonight against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

Victorino, who tweaked the hip rounding first base in the first inning last night against the Padres, took BP before the game and said he could be available to pinch-hit if needed. Charlie Manuel said later that Victorino is day-to-day, which is a good thing for him. Because the Phillies are carrying 13 pitchers, they have just four bats off the bench. If Victorino couldn’t play for a few days that would leave Manuel with just two bench moves (assuming he would keep Victorino and the backup catcher on the bench).

Brett Myers had successful hip surgery today in New York. He begins his rehab program Saturday and could begin a long toss program in about three months. That would be early September, which makes his chances of pitching again this season remote.

Forgot to mention yesterday that when Philly writers approached Jake Peavy in San Diego he said he was “tired and going to lay down.” The Phillies are interested in Peavy, but Peavy has a no-trade clause and is unlikely to accept a trade to Philly.

The Dodgers showed a picture of Geoff Jenkins on the scoreboard when Jayson Werth hit in the first inning. It wouldn’t be so bad except Werth played for the Dodgers.

I have been informed that Lauren Conrad is throwing out the first pitch Saturday afternoon. I’ve never watched an episode of Laguna Beach or The Hills (seriously, I haven’t), but I won’t mind seeing her at the yard.
