The entire Twins rotation makes less then Vasquez, that's why teams are willing to to pay a bit more at the draft.
Yet the Twins compete for a division title every year, and The Devil Dogs went to the world series this year.
Your approach is flawed, you don't realize why it is flawed, and that is not my problem.
