You should be looking for the best hitters you can get in each spot in the lineup. Brown's edge in on-base ability was larger than Ibanez' edge in power. Ibanez generally hit either 5th or 6th that year, so it's not like the pitcher was due up behind him anyway. And even if he was, we have a guy in Rollins who often got a lot of RBIs in the leadoff spot in no small part because Carlos Ruiz was hitting 8th and got on base often.
