I've got Rosario on one of my teams. Not going to trade him. Who would I trade him for that could be a big improvement as Catcher? Great hitter's park, good lineup so long a Tulo is healthy.

I'm going throw Brett Anderson out there as a buy. His last three outings were brutal but once his ankle is right he should return to SP2-3 range. I have him on a dynasty and am not worried about his current slump but others may be less patient.

Looks like it's day to day with a minor shoulder sprain. That sudden gust of wind you felt was a nation of TT owners exhaling.

The wind probably took out a hammy or something.

Ok so here is my current sell high list.

Harvey - Mediocre team, being misused, pitching over his head
Cingrani - he has a manager that might let him be sent down and it just doesn't seem sustainable
Cubs starters - Wrigley plays as a heavy pitchers park early in the season and a heavy hitters park late in the season, get your value from the shark and CV now while you can.
Gattis - Probably too late but he'll be on the waiver wire by the all star break.
Fowler - He has hit a bunch of HR off of really bad pitching, he did the same last year. I'll take the under on 16 HR and he doesn't steal a ton, get your value now!
Reynolds - Probably a hard sell but eventually the cold streak will come and he'll be useless for 2 months.

And now the easiest of all

Clay Buchholz - This is not a breakout at all. Just look at the swinging strike percentages. The K rate will come crashing down and everything else will go with it. If you can get someone to sell you a soft ace for him take it in an instant. if you can find a tier 3 guy doing well for him take that as well. An example would be I'd easily trade him for Anibal, Gallardo, Cain, Sale, Gio, Scherzer, Shields, Peavy etc.

I don't think anyone will buy Villanueva. It's pretty much known he'll be on the WW by July. He always has these good streaks, just hold onto him until he falls off then cut ties.

He's actually been really good, it's not just luck/BABIP. K% and BB% are excellent and his GB% has gone way up (on par with Tim Hudson). He won't sustain a 2.3 ERA but 3.5 is certainly possible with a decent K/9. I wouldn't sell him because you probably won't get anything decent in return.
