Ryan Howard is still struggling with left handed pitching when they throw him a breaking ball. It's been something that he's struggled with for his entire career. Why doesn't he practice this all the time? Very strange that he hasn't been able to figure this out so far.
Here's an at-bat from yesterday against the Astros, I think you can predict what is going to happen next.
Howard will have to be in a position to lead this team this year, he's making $25M for 1 season to play baseball for the Phillies but hasn't solved one of the things that he should have by now.
