1 WAR is usually worth about $5 mil on the open market, and that equivalency is dated by a few years, so it's probably worth slightly more now. I know he's old, and I wouldn't have signed him, but $8 mil is just not that much to give a free agent anymore. Plus it's a pretty short deal.
His 4 WAR in 2010 was due to his defense, aka UZR, aka bleh

Aside from last year his OPS and WRc+ have been average at best since 2009.

There is no way 1 war is worth $5 million. That would put a 4 WAR player at being worth $20 million a year. I don't care what Fangraphs says, that makes no sense.
