$17M/103 = $165,000 per weighted run created.
$10M/57 = $175,000 per weighted run created.
Brandon Phillips is making more money per run created. I only looked at those two players. There may be more.
How many runs has Ryan Ludwick created for his $2M? The assertion that Joey Votto is last on the team in runs created per $ seems made up to me.
