Billy Marlin Traded To Indians

DAVIE, FL (TCR) - Continuing their efforts to shed salary, the Florida Marlins earlier today traded their mascot Billy the Marlin to the Cleveland Indians for a media relations intern to be named later.

"We're very excited to be adding a fresh face to our dynamic team," said Matthew Roebuck, Director of Media Relations. "And I hope they enjoy the weather down here, because we can't really pay them a stipend."

Indians General Manager Mark Shapiro said Billy will compete with current mascot Slider this spring for the big-league job.
