Goudey Trade-away #24: Ramirez for Owings

This trade comes in from Christopher in New Port Richey, Florida.

Giving: Hanley Ramirez, #46
Getting: Micah Owings, 2007 UD ROY Predictors

I used to love this kind of insert set, whether it was 'Crash the Game', 'Own the Game' or whatever else, these 'predictor' cards were like the lottery, or like fantasy baseball for little kids. It was great.

Something tells me that Owings ('Ow' is right in his name) is not going to be the National League Rookie of the Year. But as the New York State Lottery's tag line says: "Hey, You Never Know." Owings could still pull this one out. All he has to do is convince the Diamondbacks manager to start him six straight days, and then go on to throw six no-hitters and/or perfect games in a row. It could happen, right?
