Yep, I took RJ and Pedro in the top 3 in several drafts back in the day. I'm pretty sure I took RJ #1 in 2 or 3 drafts because having him means strikeouts are game over. The concept may seem foreign to you newbies who refuse to take pitching before round 15 but Aces who were that ridiculous are worth #1 overall picks.
