I would rather have kept Stubbs instead of Heisey. Especially since Ludwick got hurt, our line up would have been set, defense as well.
Our defense would be solid with Choo sliding to LF and Stubbs taking over in CF, plus Cozart could be moved to the 8 spot in which he belongs.
You really think they'd have traded Choo for Heisey and Didi? No way in heck. And where is this long list of players the Reds traded too soon? without trading Grandal and Alonso there would be no Latos in Red. Name the other talent we've traded too soon...
