Cubs | Team Owners Suing Man for Mistake in Payment

The Associated Press reports the Tribune Co., which owns the Chicago Cubs and The Hartford Courant are battling a former newspaper carrier to get back the last of $301,000 it accidentally gave to him instead of a baseball player with the same name. The money was meant for former Cubs RP Mark Guthrie was sent to the bank account of Mark Guthrie, the Courant deliveryman, in three payments, the final one made last October. Five weeks, later the Cubs realized the error, and the team took back $275,000 before Guthrie froze his account. The Cubs sued in February but last month filed legal documents offering to drop the suit if he handed over the final $26,000.
