How do you define an ace? (Statistically and in words)
Who do you consider aces ?
And Second tier pitchers ?
I'm just gonna call an ace a pitcher you can give the ball in an elimination playoff game and he throws 7 in with 2 ER or less over half the time. Gonna leave it to the experts here to define it statistically.
2nd Tier (I list Fernandez, Darvish, and Tanaka in this level because they need to do it for at least 3 years IMO before moving up to the elite class)
How do your rankings go ?
