Look, when Grant fought Lee, Lee was outnumbered BADLY.  He ended up with what?  30 or 40 thousand men when surrendered?  At Seven Days, Little Mac and Lee were pretty much even.(Forces actually engaged in combat)  And Lee may not have smashed the Yankees at Chancelorsville as bad as he did if Grant had been in command.  But he wasn't.  And Lee was outnumbered.  And he still won very impressive battles, and kept the war going.  I mean, either way, you have to admit Chancelorsville was a masterpiece.
