"His breaking pitches and changeups were staying in the strike zone, not going through the strike zone," New York manager
said. "I thought he tried to throw strikes early in the count. He doesn't have the same look out there. We know he has talent, we know it's there. Physically he's fine. He's going to have to work at it."

Weaver was criticized for slumping his shoulders and making faces.
"I showed emotion at Detroit, that's just me," he said. "It's not everybody who can go out there with a straight face."
