I really haven't seen enough of Brown to say he's bad off lefties. Utley when he's hitting is average against them. Howard sucks obviously. The problem I have with the lineup is that Utley is the only guy producing runs. If Lee doesn't pitch spectacular tonight, the Phillies are 0-3.
Brown was on base almost 50% of the time in the series but doesn't score a single run. He just seems better suited for the 2 hole right now. Rollins maybe 5 or Utley 5 and Rollins 3? It's just an idea. I don't like moving guys around who've been good in that spot but when you leave 22 guys stranded through 27 innings, it might be a good idea to switch things.
Hoping that Howard and Young will stop being black holes in the lineup too.
