From the Detroit Free Press:

In the process of losing to the Detroit Tigers, 7-3, [Jeff] Weaver’s body language was the kind that gets Little Leaguers in trouble.

The Mariners could try to help him find himself by making him a long man in the bullpen....

Or, they could release him and eat the remainder of his $8.25 million contract....
