I'm definitely not one of these "the backup quarterback is the most-popular guy in town" guys. However, if you want to debate the merits of Stubbs v Heisey, I'll be here all week.
Not really. I like Heisey but I wouldn't bench Stubbs for him. The Reds need to continue to develop Stubbs IMO as I believe that the Reds may well go into next year with an OF of Heisey/Stubbs/Bruce and Heisey seems to be adapting to playing PT pretty well. I would however give Heisey more time in LF against RHP and spot him in CF against tough RHP.
