If the Reds were to deal say Stubbs, and a couple of prospects for a pitcher, then a guy like James as a 25th man while Sappelt gets more experience wouldn't be a bad idea. Personally, I'd like to see Stubbs, Masset and Volquez packaged with a prospect or two in order to get a starter and maybe a reliever. That would open a spot on the 40 man and maybe the 25 man. I'd be ok with Heisey in CF and a guy like James being a defensive caddie who comes in and plays CF with Heisey shifting to LF for Alonso in the late innngs. Of course, if they keep the current players there is no room.
