Strange how stats are hurting the game

The guy who can't play 1B very well or is DH and hits .240 with 30 HRs is paid much more than the guy who plays good defense and hit .290. Defense and speed are not measured by agents, so it is not rewarded.
No way a successful reliever who pitches 30% of the innings a successful starting pitcher does should be paid more, or even half. the 20 second pitching clock would need to be cut to 10-15 to ever get their mojo back. The game does not fit modern society.
