Inter-League Report

TBDSN-With the Inter-League play being over, which league and teams fared the best? Does the schedule need tweaked a bit? I thought about several ways of changing the schedule, but alas the 162 games makes it very difficult to make it even out. Currently we play every team with 10 games between each other meaning it is either a 3 game series or a four game series. One team gets an advantge this way because it is either a 6-4 series home or away depending on how the schedule was made. Do some teams get an advantage under the current scenario? Unlike the real world, the schedule doesn't have to be made up considering travel costs and availability at least (lol...like Astros a few years back that had to play something like 35 straight away games.) However the division play is 15 and 15 and is evened out.

Under my best scenario you would play each non-division opponent for 8 games and could be either 4 game sets home and away or a 2 game home/away scenario like the NHL. Inter-League play would have to be in the 2 home/away scenario for 16 games total instead of the current 12 which would be more fun in my thinking and not playing the same raivals each year would be great. The drawback is the final two series of the season where the you would play an extra game against two of your division opponents. Would people complain about being short changed by 1 game in their division? (of course they would, most just like to find something to complain about anyway.)
