Change batting order?

I know  it is probably best not to fix something if it's not broken, the Rays are winning in bunches after all, but do you think there is a need to switch up the batting order a little...or a lot? The offense is sputtering a bit, so maybe a change is not so bad. My biggest issue is all those lefties together at the top of the order. What would you, as the monday-morning-manager do? Here is mine:

1. Akinori Iwamura- I think right now at least, the best lead-off man we have

2. Evan Longoria- a lot of rookies seem to have success at this slot

3. Carl Crawford- good AVG with RISP

4. B.J. Upton-good AVG with RISP

5. Carlos Pena- needs a change

6. Cliff Floyd/ Willy Aybar/ Eric Hinske

7. Dioner Navarro/ Shawn Riggans

8. Gabe Gross/Jonny Gomes

9. Jason Bartlett
