Has anyone done the math to figure out what the average salary would be for a MLB player if they were at 50/50 with the league at their current total revenue rate of $7 billion?

50% of $7 billion is $3.5 billion
28-man rosters x 30 franchises = 840 players
$3.5 billion / 840 = $4.16 million per player

The current average is $3,440,000 [http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/salaries/avgsalaries]

Let me know if I am totally wrong. Maybe some math people can fix anything I've done wrong.
