This is just so Cubs ...


Mark Guthrie, the former newspaper carrier for The Hartford Courant, shared more than a name with Mark Guthrie, the former relief pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. They shared a corporate parent.

Last fall, someone at the Tribune Co.'s corporate headquarters put $301,000 into Mark Guthrie's account. Only it was the wrong Mark Guthrie.

Nearly a year later, $26,000 is still in the deliveryman's account and the Cubs want it back. They've had a lawsuit pending against Guthrie since February.
