Johnson in - Vargas to the pen

The Marlins are juggling the rotation.

The Marlins have switched up their rotation for Thursday against the Nationals. Right-hander Josh Johnson will replace struggling lefty Jason Vargas, who will work out the bullpen.

The plus about the change is it will give the team a left-handed reliever.  The downside is, it is sometimes hard to get back on track coming out of the pen, especially if you are used as a LOOGY.

In case you didn't know, a LOOGY is a (L)eft-handed (O)ne (O)ut (G)u(Y).

We will see how Joe manages this one and how Jason reacts.
