These guys are pretty close to being equal in value, so there's no sense using two spots and hurting your team waiting to use them both. You already have Pujols, so you only would be able to use one of them anyway.
There's a good change neither of them gets 7 starts all year at 1B. I'd drop at least one right away.
I'd seriously disagree with that. Hafner now has 2 starts at 1B before their first InterLeague game. By 6/24, each team will have played 9 away games in interleague. At this pace, Hafner will have 11 or more starts, and Ortiz 9, by then.
If you hold on to both, you'll get a sick new 1B AND be able to trade for a top SP, with a week still to go in June.
