Wouldn't ace, by definition, be the top 30 pitchers in baseball? We have 30 teams, 30 #1 slots, and the word "ace" is synonymous with the number one. Some teams obviously have more than 1 ace, and some have none, but I'd say the cutoff is probably the 30th-best pitcher, the cutoff for "#2 pitcher" is at #60, and so on.
