I can't ignore the need at C - so I will select Buster Posey - C - Giants
Man someone is going to have to explain this one to me. How a team with Ivan Rodriguez, Lance Parrish and Victor Martinez to choose from takes a catcher. Seems to me that finding a starting pitcher would have been a more logical choice but what do I know. I've never even made the playoffs in rule v.
I hear ya twfan, but I needed some great D, & Posey has that as well as a lot less K's per - the others are good, but I saw Posey as an upgrade.
I think Posey is an upgrade.  Detroit Pudge and Parrish don't hit well enough at this cap, and Martinez can't throw anyone out.

Texas hitting, Dodger pitching.

Hideo Nomo, LAD
King of the second-round draftees.

I have records of Dodgers being used 18 times; Nomo has been drafted in Round 2 12 times.

The other contenders were both protected before Round 2 this time: Don Wilson, Astros (11 picks); Carl Yastrzemski, Red Sox (10).

Also: I kind of wanted Nomo for the Phils.

I've used Nomo before, and he's been solid for me.  Would have been on my 2nd round short list, too.

Worthy of note: Lofton, Indians left unprotected for Round 1 for the first time.   Not drafted.
