Blair Thomas is back with another Northwest Athlete Profile, this time it’s Portland born Darwin Barney of the MLB’s Chicago Cubs. Darwin was counted out by most pundits but was MLB Rookie of the Month in his first month up. Flashback to 2006, Barney was a part of history as Oregon State went on an improbable run and became the first team in College World Series history to lose twice and still win the title.
