I'm a firm believer in the old adage that a picture is worth a thousand words.  So, on request here is the newer version of "What if you could tell everyone's salary by the size of their head in a team picture?" image.

These heads are actually proportional to the size of their salary, with no other mathematical adjustment.  The first thing I thought of when I saw it was grade school science class when they taught us that the sun was so big that it would fit a million Earths inside of it.  I never quite got a handle on that one until just now when I saw Soup's melon.

I think if you click the images you get a slightly larger view.  Not sure, I'm kinda new at this fanpost thing.  I'll keep an eye on it to make sure it ends up showing ok.

After converting the numbers to a big, depressing visual of underperforming Macy's parade baloons I decided that a more optimistic view was also needed, so here's everyone's head in proportion to their WAR.  Unless they have a 0 or negative WAR, in which case they have normal-sized heads.

And that looks more like what our team's been performing like.  Gallardo is the runaway MVP, Cory Hart is a monster, and a whole bunch of people are expendable. 

Lastly, just for the fun of it, I decided to do one more graphic as if the whole team was apples on a tree and they were green or ripe depending on their age.

Oops, the tree lost a few apples.  And there's one red one that looks like a worm's been eating it.
