REQ: 162 Games, Current MLB Setup, Balance Games Yes, IL NO

Any chance of finding one of these? Just to specify what i am looking for exaclty is current MLB Setup. Leagues and Divisions as they are now. I want Balanced schedule, no interleague play.

I would like the all-star game where it is supposed to be.

I think I covered it all?

I think that covers everything. I do not think anything like that is already out there.

The balance will not be perfect, especially for the 16-team subleague. That works out to 10.8 games per opponent, while the ~12.5 for the 14-team subleague figures to be a little simpler to work out. Ideally the variation will be no more than one game (either 10 or 11 games per opponent in the 16-team subleague and either 12 or 13 games per opponent in the 14-team subleague), but in order to fit the games into schedules that may not work out. Home/away split per opponent will definitely differ by more than one game.

Well, for the 14-team AL any of the actual AL schedules from between 1979-1993 would fit fine since they are a balanced format (6 opponents played 13 times each and the other 7 opponents played 12 times each). The 13 games have a home-away split of either 7-6 or 6-7. There would a total of 52 series.

For the 16-team NL, another option would be to use a balanced schedule which focuses on 3-game series. One method would have 12 opponents played 12 times each and the other 3 opponents played 6 times each. Another method would have 9 opponents played 12 times each, and the other 6 opponents played 9 times each (with the home-away split either 6-3 or 3-6). Both of these methods would have a total of 54 series.

For what it's worth, were MLB to adopt a balanced, non-interleague schedule, the NL's almost certainly would use one of the two methods I mentioned (since MLB prefers to work with 3-game series and keep 2-game series to an absolute minimum).

I would not say that. But you cannot have something where every team plays every other team in the subleague 12 times (6 home, 6 away). It would be more like 12 (6H/6A) against one team, 10 (4H/6A) against the next, 10 (6H/4A) against the next, etc.

I am fine with that. I'm not too picky.
