The fierce pass rusher did not pull down any quarterbacks, but he did accept his Hall of Fame ring.Strahan gave low-fives to his former teammates lined up along a blue strip of carpet Monday night, and then bowed to all four corners of the stadium as the crowd roared at halftime of the Colts-Giants game. He then whipped the crowd into a mini-frenzy, getting the fans to wave white towels handed out by the team in celebration of Strahans induction into the hall during the summer.It was an emotional night for Strahan and three other Giants Hall of Fame members: Frank Gifford, Lawrence Taylor and Harry Carson.Its really something, and to have the other Hall of Famers with me as well. I never thought about any of it, Strahan said. You realize what you miss when you stop playing, and I do miss the guys.When its all said and done, you know its the best relationship you ever had, but you never know if youre going to see any of the guys again. A lot are out of ttown and some are on business and couldnt be here. Nicholas Castellanos Jersey. But it means the world to me and it lets me know the relationship we had was real. And it makes you appreciate the game and sports and camaraderie.Strahan said before the game that he would have preferred to suit up one last time.Believe me, theres still a part of me that wishes I could put on a uniform and play tonight. That would be nice, said Strahan, the Giants career leader with 141 1/2 sacks and the leagues single-season record holder with 22 1/2, set in 2001. But if I did, I dont know how many plays Id make.Now a TV personality, Strahan credited his pro career with helping him to transition into another lucrative profession.I recognize that I have what I have now because of what I did in the past, said Strahan, who was joined by his son, mother, and father. Without this, theres none of that. I owe my life now to the Giants, to New York, and to them letting me hang around for 15 years.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Joe Crede Jersey . -- The Royals shook up their coaching staff Thursday in an attempt to jumpstart their failing offence, making Dale Sveum the hitting coach and Mike Jirschele their third base coach. Pedro Grifol, who took over as hitting coach last season, will now instruct catchers. The moves were announced after the Royals finished off a disastrous homestand that included a sweep at the hands of Houston, and before they opened a four-game series in Toronto. Sveum said the Royals havent done a good enough job this season of hitting pitches in the upper half of the strike zone. "The bottom line is weve struggled with elevation and weve swung at pitches down in the zone probably way too much," he said. "From thigh high to the top of the strike zone, were not doing enough damage." The Royals began the day last in the majors with 21 homers, putting them on pace to match the 1976 club for the fewest in franchise history for a non-strike-shortened season. Theyre also last in the American League in runs and slugging percentage. "There is not one man in the lineup thats hitting the ball well," Royals designated hitter Billy Butler said Wednesday. "Were just cold." Yost said "a different voice can make a difference," to struggling batters, but the Royals have heard plenty of voices about hitting: Sveum is Kansas Citys fifth hitting coach in less than three seasons. The Royals let go of Kevin Seitzer two years ago in the hope that somebody else would help the club generate more power. Seitzer was eventually hired by the Blue Jays, who currently lead the majors with 76 homers -- more than Kansas City is on pace for all season. Jack Maloof and Andre David were hired before last season, but they only made it a couple of months before they were reassigned within the franchise. It was at that point that the Royals hired Grifol and Hall of Famer George Brett on an interim basis. The Royals showed signs of life once that duo was in charge, slowly climbing into playoff contention. Grifol was given the job on a full-time basis after Brett stepped down in July, but lasted less than a year in the role. "Hes the one that pulled us out of our trouble last year," Yost said of Grifol Thursday. "A year later, we find ourselves in the exact same spot." Sveum, a former Brewers and Cubs manager, had been serving as the Royals third base coach. But he also has plenty of experience as a hitting coach, helping Milwaukee finish in the top three of the National League in homers in each of his three seasons. "Hes got experience, he studies hitting," Yost said. "Hes got a lot of knowledge. He helped Prince Fielder get, in my opinion, to the next level as an offensive performer." Ross Detwiler White Sox Jersey . The goals took Liverpools tally in the Premier League this season to 70, overtaking Manchester City as the top scorers, and left the fourth-place team just four points behind league leader Chelsea. Hugh Duffy Jersey . The thinking at the time was Clowney could have already been promised he would be selected first overall by the Houston Texans, therefore negating any need to meet with any other teams. The plot took another twist this week.Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Steve Delabar is going back to the minors. The righty was sent back down to Triple-A Buffalo for the second time this week in order to make room for Liam Hendriks who will get the start Friday night against the Cincinnati Reds. Delabar waas sent down Tuesday but was called back up for Thursdays game against the New York Yankees when Brett Cecil went to the disabled list. Jack Mcdowell White Sox Jersey . The 30-year-old has appeared in 30 games this season, recording a 4.91 earned run average and a 3-0 record. ' ' '
