Plus, as has already been mentioned, he's in a more pitcher-friendly division. I'd prefer Beachy over Wilson for a keeper for sure, especially with the price.

So my understanding of it is you either can offer
CJ Wilson/9th round pick
Brandon Beachy/10th round pick
in order to get back David Wright and a 21st round pick. CJ can be kept as a 15th rounder, and Beachy can be kept as a 19th rounder.
That's only a 4-round difference in "keepability". I'd lean towards keeping CJ and trading Beachy, but in my opinion you can't really lose here. You're picking up a white-hot David Wright who is in a Mets lineup that isn't actually that bad (Jose, Murph, Duda, etc...).
My thinking is that Wilson will do more for you the rest of the season than Beachy will, so if you're going all-in for this year you might want to consider Beachy/10th for Wright. However, you are right--I think you have enough pitching to handle the loss of EITHER of these two pieces...so why not keep the guy who could be better in the long run (Beachy)?
Very interesting trade you put together here. I think ultimately I give up CJ and a 9th to grab Wright. But I don't think you can go wrong either way. It all depends on how you are viewing this deal (that is, as an "all-in" in which case I want the better pitcher NOW, or a "well, I want to win the championship, but I don't want to miss out on someone who could be a stud").
CJ will never be a stud. Beachy could be a stud. Play it safe I think.
Edit: PS, I like how I reasoned my way through a change in opinion, haha. Good luck with the trade.
