This would be great if you're league uses a UTIL player - plus you're guarded against injury. There was a guy in my league who tried this last year by drafting Tejada and Jeter. After Jeter got hurt, his lineup wasn't hurt too badly.

I've seen it done once successfully. A guy in my league drafted A-rod, Tejada, and Renteria. He was able to use two of them at DH and Utility without hurting his team until a good trade presented itself. It sucked because I didn't have a good SS, but i wasn't one of the guys who caved in and made the big trade...I lucked out with Angel Berroa.
