Schedule Request -162

I'm trying my hand at making this on my own, but the custom generator on the board wouldn't run on my PC, and I'm going cross-eyed trying to do it on my own. Still trying! But thought I'd ask if anyone would be willing to give it a shot:

Yes Interleague
Balanced No
32 Teams
2 Subleagues, 2 Divisions w/8 Teams in each subleague
162 Games, 189 Days
Starts Last Monday in March
All Star Game on Day 100
18 Games each vs 3 division teams = 54
6 Games each vs 12 same subleague teams = 72
3 Games each vs 4 other subleague division opponents = 12
2 Games each vs 12 other subleague opponents = 24


Thank you!

It does not necessarily matter for the build, but do you mean 4 divisions with 4 teams in each for each subleague?

I have something put together but want to wait to post it until there is confirmation it will the desired parameters. It is 2 subdvisions each with 4 divisions of 4 teams.

In the meantime some cuts from "the making of"...

The specified 189 days equals 27 weeks, which equals 54 half-weeks, except subtract one for the All-Star break. So 53 half-weeks for the 162 games. How to make the series fit that way?

Taking the 18 games per division opponent and doing all 3-game series (9 home games and 9 away games) means 6 series per opponent, and 3 opponents makes 18 division series. Taking the 6 games per league opponent and doing all 3-game series (3 home games and 3 away games) means 2 series per opponent, and 12 opponents makes 24 league series. One series per interleague opponent makes 16 interleague series. Adding those up 18+24+16=58 series.

So we have 5 more series than half-weeks into which to fit them. That is okay because we have twelve 2-game series that we can combine into pairs since 4 games fit into a half-week if the other half of the week has a 3-game (or less) series. But if we combine all 12 into 6 pairs, that takes us from 58 series to effectively 52 series, which would leave us one short.

What we can do next is re-separate one of those pairs into their individual 2-game series. We can group each of those single 2-game interleague series with cases of the paired interleague series to give us two weeks of three 2-game series. Putting those together like that means 6 games and only a single offday in such a week.

Adding it up we have 53 half-weeks covered by:
  • 18 half-weeks of division games
  • 24 half-weeks of league games
  • 4 half-weeks of 3-game interleague series
  • 5 half-weeks of paired 2-game interleague series
  • 2 half-weeks of single 2-game interleague series, which will be put adjacent to paired 2-game interleague series

I actually mean 2 divisions with 8 teams in each subleague. It's a personal preference because of how I set up my playoffs.

I suspected that it would be easier to schedule as if there were 4/4, though. Designating 3 teams as "rivals" or some such. I get to keep my playoff structure, but get the ease of scheduling as if it were 4/4.

After tooling around with this some more, I suspect it might be easier to play

54 games against 3 division "rivals" 9 home/9 away each [18 3-game series]

96 games against other 12 subleague opponents 4 home/4 away each [24 4-game series? or some combination of 2 & 4-game series?]

12 games against 4 interleague opponents, rotating on a yearly basis [4 3-game series]

(play 4 teams each year, home/away wrinkles meaning 8 versions needed)

So with this tweak, it would end up

18 division rivals 3-game series
30 subleague series [18 4-game series, 12 2-game series]
4 interleague 3-game series

52 total series in 53 half-weeks

In the meantime, I'm reading up on your blog to try to better my understanding. Teach a man to fish and all that. Thank you, sir.

No problem. I will go ahead and post further below what I have. It will be configured for the 2/4/4 setup because I think more often that would be the use case for people, and it sounds like you know how to tweak the parameters at the top of the file to change it to 2/2/8 if you want to use it.

Yup, that 52 half-weeks (185-186 days) is same as MLB does now. And obviously if you split up one more 4-game series you get to that 53 half-weeks, which with one more for the All-Star break would add up to the 189 days.

The blog is a gradual work in progress, but I hope it can be helpful. Let me know if over there or on here you have any suggestions/questions/whatever that you think would be useful.

Just to follow up on this GMO, thank you for your work and your blog. I was inspired to build this tweak of my original request.
162 games
2 subleagues
2 divisions
8 teams
18 vs 3 division opponents = 54
8 vs 12 subleague opponents = 96
3 vs 4 interleague opponents = 12

I built it by hand, and learned a lot in doing so. Reading about the half weeks concept helped a lot. I also learned that I had to map out exactly which blocks between off days needed which kinds of series. 2, 3 or 4 game.
