Whoops -- you're right Joseph. I meant the inverse. I'll correct the original post. If Jeter, ARod, Manny, Bonds, Clemens, and heck, Matsuzaka aren't worth 25 million... I guess Michael Jordan made 33 million for two years, but he's one arguably the most well known and marketable athletes in the history of the world. Beckham is big, but Jordan big? Maybe...
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
