LOCAL POWER RANKINGS ” WHO’S GENERATING BUZZ IN THE D.C. AREA?

STEPHEN STRASBURG

The kid won’t be unveiled until Friday? Yet another sign the Nationals don’t know how to capitalize on the rare positive story.

JASON CAMPBELL

He survived 10 snaps against Baltimore’s blitzing defense. Next up for the quarterback is Pittsburgh. Tighten that chin strap.

GREIVIS VASQUEZ

The Maryland sharpshooter is on the Wooden Award watch list, which has 50 players, including Georgetown’s Greg Monroe.

BRUCE BOUDREAU

It has been a week since he anointed Jose Theodore the No. 1 goalie entering camp. Why? It is Semyon Varlamov’s time to shine.

MIKE RIZZO

He acquired Nyjer Morgan and sealed the Stephen Strasburg deal, earning the job as the Nationals’ permanent GM.

TWT FIVE: MOST POPULAR REDSKINS TWITTER PAGES

1. Trent Shelton (@TrentShelton) - Followers: 18,765. A mystery considering he’s a long-shot receiver trying to make the roster.

2. Chris Cooley (@thecooleyzone) - Followers: 15,431. Not surprising because he’s the Redskins’ most popular player not named Colt Brennan.

3. DeAngelo Hall (@Dhall23) - Followers: 11,136. Hall has started a new Web site and is a pretty constant presence on his account.

4. Chase Daniel (@ChaseDaniel) - Followers: 7,662. He has a big following from his playing days at Missouri.

5. Devin Thomas (@devinthomas) - Followers: 5,026. Not a big tweeter; five posts since start of training camp.

Totals as of Wednesday evening
