Ken Landreaux is perfectly happy standing still in the first base coach's box at Municipal Stadium as hitting coach for the Hagerstown Suns. Landreaux never moved an inch but has taken a journey in the last week - a fond trip down Memory Lane, with a little help from the exploits of Luis Gonzalez of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Landreaux watched with some interest - and some reminisce - as Gonzalez built a hitting streak of 30 straight games only to have it end on Wednesday. If Gonzalez had collected a hit in Arizona's 7-2 loss to Los Angeles, he would have tied Landreaux's string of 31 games which he achived in 1980.

As sports reporters, it's always great to cover or write about a team on a winning streak. Those are the easy stories, because everybody - coaches, players, even fans - like to talk about their team when it's winning. It is much tougher when a team is in the middle of a losing streak, because as the streak continues, those involved simply get fed up with the losing, let alone talking or reading about it. We don't necessarily enjoy reporting with each passing week that a losing streak has been extended, but when it's part of the story, there's no avoiding it. So, of course, I'm going to write about a team on a losing streak.

Athletes always proclaim they are just trying to do their part. And how many baseball players shag flies during an afternoon at the ballpark? OK. Before you give this subject the brush off, let's get to the root of the analogy. Lately, sports news has been like gossip at one big beauty salon. Most of the talk revolves around streaks and how they highlight and add color to a season.

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher was being evaluated by a neurologist for a possible head injury Thursday and missed practice for a second consecutive day, putting his 15-year consecutive-games streak in doubt. Coach Mike Shanahan said Fletcher was checked for about six hours by a doctor for a “balance issue.” Shanahan listed the 37-year-old Fletcher as not practicing because of head and hamstring problems. “If he's able to go, you know he's going to be able to go. But I'm sure he's a little scared, too, because any time you deal with a balance issue, it's something that's out of your control,” Shanahan said.
