The Cubs have acquired Joaquin Benoit! Oh wait.

If you’re looking for a good laugh this morning, the Chicago Sun-Times is happy to help.

The Cubs made the back page of Saturday’s paper following yesterday’s acquisition of Matt Garza from the Rays, but the thing is, they used a picture of Joaquin Benoit, instead. Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times has the hilarious photo evidence.

This is pretty rough, but really, it’s hard to blame the Sun-Times on this one. During his time in Tampa Bay, Benoit seemed to co-opt Garza’s weird chin hair thing. This looks like an innocent case of mistaken bad facial hair. No more, no less.

    Chances are, it’s an AP photo. There’s no excuse to mix up the two players, especially if the photos were tagged properly.
