    regular season is 162 games.

    I also feel like baseball is a sport where one game doesn't define the success or failure of a team or any of it's players. It's almost like probability: the bigger the sample size, the more reliable the results.

    Not like winning a baseball game is usually up to chance.

    As long as the owners are making profits from each game, why not? It's not a laboring game to play like hockey or football. I think 162 regular season games is perfect. The players have multi million dollar contracts, they better earn them some how. :)

    Why does the NBA have 82? Why does the NFL have just 16 and yet a BYE week? It's the schedule they decided on as an organization. The owners and commissioner vote on this stuff. It's that way because they made it that way.

    Because it makes the sport unique from all of the other sports. I love the fact that there are so many games!
