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

BRIAN ORAKPO

The Redskins should cut Jason Taylor and then draft Orakpo, a Texas defensive end who could provide immediate pass rushing help.

ADAM DUNN

The Nationals’ signing of outfielder Adam Dunn at least shows a frustrated fan base that they might be trying to win.

ADAM FOOTE

The veteran defenseman would be a great addition for the Capitals. He could complement Mike Green perfectly.

JAVARIS CRITTENTON

The Wizards’ 21-year-old guard should get an increase from the 25 minutes a game he has been playing.

ALEX RODRIGUEZ

How many of the fans actually care and will boycott the sport? Here’s guessing very few.
