Wouldn't have mattered how much strength Lee had remaining, Meade still had the huge not engaged 6th Corp sitting to the east of the Baltimore Pike and the relatively fresh 5th Corp. These 2 corps were just sitting there in easy supporting distance for any move Lee's army was to make, i.e. break through at the round tops, cemetery ridge, etc.
