No consideration for contracts, long term future, etc. Just if you could add 1 current Astro or Phillie for next year and only next year for free, who would you pick?
My first instinct would be Verlander to massively upgrade the pitching staff, but I don't know when he'd run into Father Time. I think going with another pitcher like Framber Valdez or Zach Wheeler who isn't as old would be a safer bet just for 2023.
A huge left-handed bat like Yordan or Harper would be appealing picks but idk, I'd lean towards giving the rotation a big boost even if they're weaker players.
So, just for next year, you can get one Astro or Phillie on the Orioles for free. Who are you picking?
