Scheduling formula (Suggestion)
« on: June 16, 2019, 08:49:52 PM »
Statement-
While most owners dismiss the notion it's my position that scheduling in any league fantasy or professional sports is an important component to a successful season.

True balance in a performance based incentive league especially helps to shape both the health and future of a league. Balance rewards teams that should earn rewarding and gives a truer representation of a simulated season.

In the real MLB teams play division foes 17 times in a season. This creates both healthy rivalry as well as a true sense of the divisions best team worthy of representation in the post season.

To me it never made sense to have an entire season of one week simulated outcomes but have the league championship be decided over 2 weeks. No other outcomes are determined over 2 full weeks of Mlb action.

Below is the formula used for my own league.

30 interleague games
72 division games
60 league games

(162 game schedule over 21 weeks)

8 X 15 weeks 120
7 X 6 weeks 42
(162 games)

Weeks 1-15 (8 game series)
Weeks 16-21 (7 game series)

18 division games per 4 teams (3 game series per div opponent)
-weeks 1,2,3,4,5,6,16,17,18,19,20,21-

15 interleague teams (2g x15weeks)
-weeks 1 thru 15-

Weeks 22-25 playoffs

Highlights are:
Opening and closing against division opponents.
60/30 balance league vs. interleague
18 games vs every division opponent
1 week championship same as every other scoring period of the season.


Use the entire template
Use part of it
Use none of it
That's the league's choice... But I've put it out here for public consumption because sharing information to improve things has always been one way to promote progress and advancement.

The numbers may need explaining to some but they all add up to 162 games.
If anyone has questions or comments feel free.

  • Brent: There was no way Beltran was going to manage a game for the Mets.  He wasn't suspended b/c he was a player, but his name is all over that report as a main player in the sign stealing.

  • frankbullsfan: Armchair question noticing after some extensions and arbs that players not being given arbitration are being claimed does that mean the team claiming them is taking on their salary the next year for example Osuna on my team I declined arbitration because he makes 10 million plus this year if someone claims him is that them saying they will take on the 10 million this season
    Yesterday at 09:04:12 PM
  • gventura: Yes, and if unclaimed they're a FA. There's nothing in the rules specifically about the situation but that's my understanding
    Yesterday at 09:28:55 PM
  • Yeagg: THAT'S
