Ryan Howard is a good first baseman, a powerful hitter. But for the money they are paying him, he needs to do better. Hitting left-handed pitchers is one of the things he needs to improve on. The other is to stay healthy for a whole season. I don't see either happening. The Phillies need to get a all-around first baseman. It seems that this is a good time to do that.
