I've used this format with the league in the past with 2 leagues of 7 with interleague play.

The All Star break was always around June 10 or so.

I don't remember there being a problem with few offdays in the league thusfar using the past schedule.

I definitely don't want off days to be the same. In past schedules, I've had teams with 2-4 days off in a row during the season at times as well.

If you don't mind giving it a whirl, I could probably tweak it from the point at which you give it to me. I just can't seem to get to 126 games with all teams played equal amounts of times with Stickware.

I also had some 4 game series in the old schedules with interleague play as well, so that's not a problem for us either.

Okay, that will work fine, just being more in the very middle of the season as opposed to the a little past middle that is more common.

I am with you on not wanting everything so symmetric. With 12 or 18 games per opponent, 6 or 9 games both home & away broken into all 3-game series is a good solution, but it is too clean for me. I like seeing ".5"s in the GB numbers and some small differences at any given point in the number of games a team has played. What I was describing above was in a week with one offday not all teams off on either Mon or Thu but some off on Mon and some off on Thu, but that little bit would be the only variety there would be.

That you are good with more than 1 day off at a time in some places allows for moving around games, like turning some pairs of 3-game series into a 2-game series and a 4-game series. In turn that allows for much more variety and a more "interesting" result.

2's and 4's instead of 2 3-gamers is fine with me, and actually would be my choice some of the time.

Looks like we're on the same page, can you create it for me?

With one league I think I can assume no All-Star Break, so that question does not appear to need to be asked.

An equal number of 3-game series and 4-game series works out great if you want one of each per week with absolutely no offdays. I could do that just fine, but I figure that would not be what you want. If you do want offdays is it okay then to break some of the 4-game series into pairs of 2-game series so that there can be offdays sprinkled in? Presumably there would be enough to where they occur about as frequently as in modern MLB (overall avg of ~2 per 3 weeks), though you could specify more or less. I think it would be for each team about four total 4-game series split into eight 2-game series.

I am also figuring on the season, assuming you okay the above, running from about a week into April to about the last week of September. That okay?

Yes. At the Edit Schedule screen after you import you will have to add the All-Star Game manually and set the Year Starts On day as is noted at the top of the schedule file.

Why should you settle for "almost"? Because "ideal" might be hard and make me grumpy?

No. Ha! Just kidding. Need some clarification though.

Only play the 3 other league opponents (presumably 20 times each), or play interleague also (with how many games against the various opponents)?

The obvious thing to do seems to be to put each team in one series per week, generally right at 4 games in length, mixing up the days on which the games are played (but never on Sunday) including maybe the occasional offdays within a series. Is that about it?

Is it okay if this suffering league is not completely balanced for each team home and away? Specificly, is it okay if teams instead of 30H/30A splits for their games have something from the set of 32H/28A, 31H/29A, 29H/31A, or 28H/32A? Getting everybody to 30H/30A if you really wanted it would really require chopping up series and shortening them.

Also, any preference on the offdays besides always Sunday, or just kind of spread them around? Lastly, any preference on game time, like perhaps all day games? What hour?

I can get to 100 with 12 interleague plus 88 (17+17+18+18+18) games in the division. That would be routine to split 50H/50A overall. In the league/division the 18 would be broken down into three 3-game series home and three such series away, and the pair of 17 would be the same except one home game would be removed from one and one away game would be removed from the other. That fits well if you want the offdays like so...

Monday off for all teams every week? That would work fine with those being the only offdays except for in the weeks having one of the 2-game interleague series sets or one the couple of similar 2-game league/division series sets.

Want an All-Star Break? If so, when? A bit past half way through the season like MLB does now?

The layout looks like the 100 games will fit in about 18 weeks, a bit more than 4 months. So as opposed to the 6-month MLB going from beginning of April to beginning of October, do you want to start later (run end of May to start of October), end early (run early April to beginning of August), some combination (like start late April and end at the beginning of September), or something else?

ya split up like how you mentioned is fine. Also off days under than Sunday is entirely up to you, I have no prefernce.

For start time it'd be preferable between 11am and 1pm due to location and the fact that their won't be any night games for roughly another 80 years
