I think Stubbs would still be in demand. He's a legit CF and teams are always looking for those. If the Reds didn't have Heisey and Sappelt, he'd be on my untouchable list and I'm lukewarm on the guy. Masset had a good year until he finally gave out and other teams might not worry as much about his arb case as the Reds might be while trying to cram the salary of the guy they get back into the budget. Volquez is merely an intriguing lottery ticket at this point.
As for the package, obviously a valued minor leaguer or two would need to be added (Grandal? Gregorious? Hamilton?) but they wouldn't have an impact on the 25 man roster, which is important where rule 5 is concerned, so I didn't really mention them.
