This whole thing with Italy makes me wonder if a team with all A+ and AA players could win in the majors because of lack of familiarity of them by their opponents.

I figure 162 games is long enough for people to figure a team out, but I think about how most teams will play each other a max of about 20 times, and I start to wonder just maybe...

Of course, in reality, it's probably true that the lack of real talent these guys have would be cancelled out by the talent of the big leaguers regardless, but it makes me wonder if familiarity or lack thereof, really is that important to success in the Majors.
