I'm going to take a different angle on this one. Sometimes its best to have an outside and unbiased opinion on the infrastructure. I would suggest having a VMware partner, or VMware themselves come in to perform a health check against the environment. I'm sure this will uncover a number of configuration issues and hopefully help to bring forth some best practice recommendations.
Chances are this may help to support your argument to bring forth positive change.

Agreed that having an actual expert come in would help, but how is he going to get that approved if the Sr guy puts a bug in the manager's ear and talks him out of spending the money? Hence why I think the next step for him is to put the proof down in front of the managers face (whiteboard or executive summary) and exclude the Sr guy from the meeting.
