How is the "Dollars" stat in the Value section calculated?

+1 vote
I know it has something to do with $/WAR but I couldn't find anything in the glossary explaining how the numbers are specifically arrived at.

In the past, I remember several articles here valuing a win at roughly $5 million. However, dividing the dollars into WAR for a few different players over the last few years ('08-'12) comes up with a number hovering around 4.5 in all years except for 2010, which is at a seemingly low 3.98.

If that is indeed the way you calculate "Dollars", how do you arrive at your constants for each season?
