I am not sure it is lack of urgency.

They need to find a seller and sellers have no reason for urgency. If you have one of the best relievers or starters in the market it is to your advantage to wait. There are more buyers than sellers.

The Twins could overpay significantly and win a deal today. I would think that is a move of desperation rather than urgency.

 

Ian Kennedy could be had today for a very reasonable price, yet I see no action...

We need to modestly overpay in prospects for relief sooner rather than later.

 

The 10ish more games between now and the deadline matter and Rogers is getting cooked alive in usage (not just usage but constant usage in high leverage situations sometimes for multiple innings).

 

We need to try to win those 10 games AND prevent Rogers from breaking down.

 

Suck it up and overpay a bit (it could be even more by the deadline)
