Red Rocket RC's time has expired, which puts me on the clock. My final player selection (as my next will be the required manager) is one that is a total homer pick. He's a guy that won't show up in too many of these kinds of drafts, but I loved this player as a kid and his overall value to a team is huge. So.....

The Denver Bears select Jose Oquendo, U Mets/Cardinals

Oquendo was the consumate team player, filling in at any and all positions when called upon. In 1988 he played every position, including pitching an inning. He hit a three run home run in the deciding game of the '87 NLCS to help vault the Cardinals into the World Series. He's still helping the ballclub to this day, working as the team's 3rd base coach.
