If someone finds something creative that is legal but not within the spirit of what your league enjoys, then discuss it and perhaps add a rule for the next season. My league has had a gentleman's agreement for as long as I can remember that you have to try to field a full lineup. If you have one catcher and he gets hurt, then you need to either pick up another one or trade for one. Not because playing the other way is "wrong" necessarily, but because the owners in my league on the whole felt that better described the game we wanted to play it. When owners didn't do this, it was too easy to drift into tanking, which none of us felt was in the best interests of the league. But in the absence of such a rule, I'd have trouble coming down on someone who did so.
Thank you. This is what I've been trying to say.. Just because something is technically within the rules doesn't mean it won't be frowned upon and, among my league mates, would be referred to as a "b*tch move."
Have some pride, make an honest effort, and do the "right" thing and you're league mates will respect you and your victories will be much more rewarding.
