Welcome to "Hanleywood"?

When the Miami Marlins brought in Jose Reyes to play Hanley Ramirez's position, you kinda knew the writing was on the wall for the 28-year-old infielder.

But, gosh, fellas...did it have to take you this long to trade the guy?

Dude hit the Twitters Wednesday to sum up his feelings.


The last time a Ramirez joined the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chavez Ravine was re-named "whatever-wood", it was 2008 and all Manny Ramirez did was hit .396, slug 17 home runs and knock in 53 runs in as many games.

With Hanley Ramirez in the midst of a two seasons long slump, my guess is Dodgers fans are hoping some new surroundings might yield similar results.

For the year, he was hitting .246 with just 14 homers and 48 RBI for the fish.
