So is Manny Rameriez worth his salary? I am starting to think that there is a justification to giving the man $20+ million for the next couple year. I am not saying that the Cardinals should do this, but I was interested in the Dodgers run production since Manny arrived. TBS flashed the Dodgers runs per game before and after Rameriez arrival. 4.2 runs per game before and 4.7 runs per game after. A half run a game over the course of a season is 80 runs. That is about 8 wins. If we take $3 million a win (which is the last figure I heard the Cardinals use as a baseline) that come out to a worth of $24million a year. I know this is kinda fast ansd loose with the numbers but I have been thinking of what Pujols will be worth at the end of his contract and $24 million is sounding more than reasonable to me.
