I had this one time, but now I can't find it.

What's the formula for assembling each year's schedule ?

I know every team plays its division rivals 15-19 times, depending on number of teams in that division

Every team plays all other different-division, same league opponents ______ times

Every team plays a geographic rivalry interleague team _________ times


every team plays a "semi-rivalry" interleague team _______ times

and, of course, it all adds up to 81/81 = 162

who can fill in the blanks ?

I'm not sure that the schedule is balanced for other division/same league teams, is it? Other than you play all of them.
