'Mannywood' sign replaced in L.A.

Mannywood is no more.

The Dodgers are getting a jump on life after Manny Ramirez (as if last season's 50-game preview and this year's injury stints weren't enough) as the "Mannywood" section is no longer at Dodger Stadium.

According to the Los Angeles Times ' Steve Dilbeck , the Dodgers sold the spot to John Hancock and 790 KABC.

The Dodgers are still accepting $99 for two T-shirts and two tickets as part of the "Mannywood seats" but the only way you'll know you're there is the fans with matching shirts in your section.

Ramirez has missed 61 of the Dodgers' 106 games this season and is a free agent after the season. He'll likely return to the American League where he'll serve as a designated hitter, because even with all the headaches that he brings, he can still flat hit. In those 61 games, Ramirez is hitting .317/.409/.516 with eight home runs and 39 RBI.

For now, the former Mannywood sign reads "The future is yours" -- and the future of Dodger Stadium is now a future without Manny being Manny.

Next season another fanbase will cheer him and embrace the odd slugger and his many quirks, because that's what people do -- cheer people who can hit.
