    Mark Guthrie

    Mark Guthrie from the Chronology

    Sep 9, 2004 - The Tribune Company‚ owners of the Cubs‚ misses the Mark with a check. Mark Guthrie‚ 43‚ a former newspaper carrier for the Hartford Courant‚ which is owned by the Tribune‚ receives a check meant for former pitcher Mark Guthrie. A year ago‚ the Tribune's payroll department mixed the two men up and deposited $301‚000 of the baseball player's pay into the newspaper carrier's bank account. It took five weeks for the company to detect the error. The deliveryman noticed the money‚ but didn't touch it. He knew it was a mistake‚ and cooperated with Tribune. But Guthrie of Connecticut stopped the last $26‚000 from being taken out of his account until the company proved to him that he would not suffer any tax ramifications over the company's error. Guthrie‚ the baseball player‚ didn't get picked up by the Cubs and is now a free agent. Guthrie the newspaper carrier was also dropped by the media conglomerate due to the lawsuit‚ and is presumably also a free agent.

    Jan 16, 2003 - The Cubs sign free agent P Mark Guthrie to a contract.

    Dec 6, 2002 - In a sinister move‚ the Yankees offer the same two-year $4.6 million contract to three lefty relievers-Mike StantonMark Guthrie and Chris Hammond-and give each 15 minutes to decide. Hammond‚ 37‚ signs for $4.8 million over 2 years. Hammond‚ out of baseball for 2 years‚ had a remarkable season‚ posting a .095 ERA in 63 games and did not allow an earned run after June 28. He is the 3rd pitcher since 1900 to post a sub-one ERA while pitching 70+ innings. The veteran Stanton doesn't bother to respond to the step-child treatment and‚ preferring to remain in the New York area‚ will sign a 3-year contract with the Mets in a week.

    Jun 16, 2002 - Mo Vaughn belts a 3-run HR in the bottom of the 8th off David Wells to give the Mets a 3-2 win over the Yankees. Mark Guthrie‚ in relief of Pedro Astacio‚ picks up the win. In the 5th‚ Piazza throws out Alfonzo Soriano‚ ending a streak of 51 successful runners against Mike‚ not counting a 1-3-6 throwout on April 16.

    Dec 14, 2001 - The Mets send recently-acquired OF David Justice and $1.2 million to the Oakland A's in exchange for Ps Mark Guthrie and Tyler Yates.

    Jan 5, 2001 - Free agent signings include Reggie Sanders to the Diamondbacks; INF Greg Norton to the Rockies; P Mark Guthrie to the A's for 2 years; and vet Bobby Bonilla by the Cards.

    Jul 31, 2000 - The Blue Jays obtain pitchers Steve Trachsel and Mark Guthrie from the Devil Rays for 2 minor leaguers.

    May 12, 2000 - The Devil Rays obtain P Mark Guthrie from the Cubs for veteran OF Dave Martinez.

    Aug 31, 1999 - The Red Sox obtain beefy closer Rod Beck from the Cubs for P Mark Guthrie and a player to be named.

    Jul 31, 1995 - The Twins trade pitchers Kevin Tapani and Mark Guthrie to the Dodgers for pitchers Jose Parra and Greg Hansell‚ and IF Ron Coomer.

    May 25, 1995 - Minnesota relief P Mark Guthrie hurls 6 innings against Detroit‚ fanning 12‚ to get the win in the Twins' 4-3 victory over the Tigers. It is the most batters struck out by a relief in 15 years.
