Nationals aren't good this year. Not the Rays cup of tea.
That leaves Cardinals, Phillies Astros. Maybe the Braves.
Just outbid them and see what happens.
Define lots of money. A $20 million deal for this year only costs about $10 million after the draft. Are you suggesting a $30 million deal for this year? Because it has to be not close to come to a rebuilding club on a one year deal.

It's not just about this year. It's about maximizing their limited time in the league this year to leverage a big contract next offseason. Hard to do that on a bad ballclub.
