Brown hasn't exactly proven he should be anything more than a 6 hitter at this point. He wasn't even a lock to make the team going into Spring Training. He'll get a better spot in the order when he earns it (I type this as he just blasts a home run).
I've always been a Brown fan and I'm hoping for a breakout year after his awesome spring. If the Phillies want to compete, Brown has to be a big part of that. And if the Phillies are struggling but Brown is hitting, I would really like him up farther in the lineup. I don't know what exactly he has to do to earn it?

And I'm not worried about Howard either. I know what he is and it's not gonna change. Just hard when Young isn't hitting either, right behind him. If Howard starts hitting then I really don't care what the lineup looks like. They'll score runs.
