RENTON, Wash. [url=https://www.cheapnfljerseyschina.co/]Cheap NFL Jerseys China Free Shipping[/url] . - After the surgery and the rehabilitation, the setbacks and finally the triumph in the Super Bowl, a simple voluntary off-season workout has more meaning for Percy Harvin. His appreciation is a byproduct of spending most of his first season with the Seattle Seahawks as a spectator. "Im just happy to be out here, Im happy to be healthy right now," Harvin said last month during the Seahawks organized team activities. "Were all tuned into what we have to get done this next coming year so were all just out here working. It feels tremendously good to get back on the field and be as one." Having Harvin fully healthy and ready to go from the start will be key for the Seahawks when they get to the start of training camp in late July. There are still three more days of workouts next week during minicamp to get through, but so far this off-season has been nothing but a success for Harvin in finally getting fully integrated into Seattles offence. Last season, Harvin pushed through the off-season workouts. It was a must in order to learn his new team, his new offence, his new quarterback after the trade that brought him to Seattle from Minnesota. But Harvin was never right, the pain in his hip never leaving. "I knew I had pain, I didnt know exactly what it was so I just kind of pushed through the whole last year in the off-season," Harvin said. The problem and what followed is now well known. Harvin had the labrum in his hip repaired and he played in only one regular-season game in 2013. He returned for the NFC divisional playoff game against New Orleans, only to get knocked out in the second quarter with a concussion. He missed the NFC championship game. Of course, Harvin made his presence known on the biggest stage, with two big offensive plays in the first half of the Super Bowl and his 87-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to start the second half. The Super Bowl proved to be Harvins springboard. Within a couple of weeks of the season ending, Harvin was texting teammates to make sure they were getting started on their off-season workouts. He took part with many of Seattles wide receivers, tight ends and running backs during a pseudo-camp in Southern California organized by quarterback Russell Wilson. And Harvins been getting plenty of reps during the OTAs — all without pain. "This is probably the best Ive ever felt since before college," Harvin said. Having Harvin as a full participant gives Seattle a chance to try to sort out its receiving situation early. While there is depth in the group there are also questions. Will Sidney Rice be healthy enough to return and be a contributor? Can Doug Baldwin move to the outside to replace Golden Tate and be as effective as he was playing mostly in the slot in previous seasons? And how can Seattle use Harvins skills to the fullest extent as long as hes healthy from the start of the season? "Percy is spending a lot more time out there so that is bringing a new element of speed," Seattle cornerback Ricahrd Sherman said. "Our offence is coming up with some cool concepts. Its a fun little chess game out there." NOTES: RB Marshawn Lynch was absent from the final OTA on Thursday, as hes been during the Seahawks off-season program. Coach Pete Carroll was not made available to address reports that Lynch may skip next weeks mandatory minicamp. Lynch would be subject to fines of about $70,000 if he skips next weeks final three team sessions before the start of training camp in July. "Wed love to have him ... As long as he does his thing on Sunday, I got no problems with him at all," centre Max Unger said. [url=https://www.cheapnfljerseyschina.co/hop-riopel-jersey-for-sale/]Hop Riopel[/url] . Thats 14 consecutive losses to the two-time defending champs, and most of them were over before they even began. Result notwithstanding, Sundays game had a very different feel to it. [url=https://www.cheapnfljerseyschina.co/mike-mccormack-jersey-for-sale/]Mike McCormack[/url] . The match, billed as a "next-gen" encounter between two of the sports rising stars, lasted two and a half hours. The loss kept Raonic, from Thornhill, Ont., from reaching a third fourth-round spot in Melbourne over the past four years.

His club sure did that against Cleveland on Wednesday. The Royals scored all their runs by tying a franchise record with four sacrifice flies, and Yordano Ventura dominated the Indians over seven stingy innings in a 4-1 victory. "Its finding a way to win a ballgame thats important," said Yost, whose team has won four straight. "Good teams find ways to score those runs, and we did it four times today." In doing so, the Royals became only the second team to score four runs all on sacrifice flies since it became an official stat in 1954. The Expos managed to do it against the Cubs on May 28, 1980, according to STATS, although that happened in an 8-4, 14-inning loss. "See?" Yost said. "We made history." Ventura (4-5) allowed six hits while striking out three without a walk to win back-to-back starts for the first time. The only run he allowed came in the sixth, when he gave up consecutive singles to start the inning and Carlos Santana hit an RBI single. By then, Indians counterpart Trevor Bauer (1-3) had already allowed sacrifice flies to Jarrod Dyson, Omar Infante and Alcides Escobar. Billy Butler added another sacrifice fly off reliever John Axford in the seventh to complete the scoring. "Usually Im able to strike out guys in situations like that," Bauer said. "I made a couple of good pitches today, but they fouled them off and put them in play. So it is unusual." The Indians loaded the bases off Wade Davis with nobody out in the eighth, but two strikeouts and a groundout ended the threat. Greg Holland worked a perfect ninth for his 19th save. The Royals (33-32) moved over .500 for the first time since May 18. They also jumped over Cleveland into second place in the AL Central as they embark on a trip that begins with the White Sox and concludes with the division-leading Detroit. Lonnie Chisenhall had a pair of hits for Cleveland, extending his hitting streak to a career-best nine games. Hes had at least two hits in his last ffive.

Prior to the game, Indians manager Terry Francona recalled with disdain the last time his club faced Ventura -- the young flamethrowers debut last September. Ventura allowed one run over 5 2-3 innings, and at one point threw a pitch to Yan Gomes clocked at 102 mph. "Hes got pretty special stuff," Francona said. "Kind of hope we dont see that today." Turns out he did. Ventura kept the ball down in the strike zone and forced the Indians to chop into a series of groundouts. He retired seven straight batters at one point, never allowing a ball to be hit out of the infield. "I went out there with the mentality to throw a lot of strike," Ventura said through a translator. "Something good was going to happen if I threw a lot of strikes." Nobody was more frustrated than Jason Giambi. With the Royals shifting their infield, the Indians DH grounded out to the exact same spot three straight times before popping out. "Hes got great stuff," Giambi said. "When he locates like he did today, hes tough. He really is. Hes got good mound presence and attacks the strike zone." The Royals scored their first run when Dyson followed a double by Mike Moustakas and a single by Escobar with a sacrifice fly in the third. Nori Aoki followed with a single, and Infante hit his sacrifice fly to give the Royals a 2-0 lead. Escobars sacrifice fly came after a double by Salvador Perez and a single by Moustakas in the fourth, and Butler added his sacrifice fly after singles by Infante and Eric Hosmer. That was enough to beat Bauer, who has still never won in seven road outings. The Indians starter allowed three runs on seven hits in 5 1-3 innings. "That type of energy and intensity we played with today, thats the way we need to play," Butler said. "Bauer was pitching really well. Every opportunity we had we capitalized on." NOTES: Escobar has hit in 10 straight games. ... Indians OF/1B Nick Swisher (left knee) planned to make a final rehab start Wednesday for Double-A Akron before joining the team Thursday in Boston. Asked if Swisher would be activated immediately, Francona said, "Well see." ' ' '
