But do you really want to play the IF/COULD game? Because I guess I would counter with:
IF the Reds get Cliff Lee (or some equivalent now that he's gone), they COULD win the World Series.
Isn't that kind of the point of this whole thing? I guess the answer to that depends on whether you really care about the REDS or the REDS MINOR LEAGUES. Not knocking you personally, because I also (clearly) love following prospects, but at a certain point you need to remember why we care.
