Rob Bowen

I got this card back in the mail from Rob Bowen the day after one arrived that I had purchased on ebay. I decided to go with the one I had sent out. I sent it to Rob care of the A's last year.

Rob Bowen was drafted by the Twins in the 2nd round of the 1999 draft. He made his major league debut on April 1, 2003. On March 29, 2006 he was placed on the waivers and picked up by the Tigers. Just a few days later the Tigers waived him and the Padres picked him up. He played a season and a half with the Padres before being traded to the Cubs with Kyler Burke for Michael Barrett and cash, one month later he was traded to the A's with Jerry Blevins for Jason Kendall and cash. Since the middle of the 2007 season he has been with the A's.
