I don't believe the given answer to be correct. 162 or 163

According to the article linked below, there are only ~162 games per year. This means that the MAX # of games that any team could play is 81 (162/2).

So the Question remains unanswered: How many games does each Major League Baseball team play during the regular season??? 559Josh

The question was "many games does EACH MLB team play in the regular season", not "how many total MLB games are there in a regular season".

Therefore, the original answer WAS correct: 162. It's easy to verify: go to Wikipedia and search for "2009 major league baseball season". In the tables that list each team's season record, add up the "games won" and "games lost" columns. Obviously, for any given team, the sum of these columns must be the total games played by that team (given that MLB has no drawn matches). You will see that for each team, the total is either 162 or 163. (Officially, each team is scheduled for 162 regular season games. However, if two teams finish the season tied for leadership of their division, then they must play-off to determine a winner. Those games are counted as regular season games, so each of those two teams would play 163 games for the year).

The objection that you stated would only be true if the total of ALL major league baseball games played in the season was 162. But then, the divisor would not be 2 (because there are more than two teams). If the total of all games was 162, but there were only two teams, that would still be 162 games each. Just because each game is played by two teams, that doesn't mean the answer should be divided by two. Think of it this way: imagine there are only two teams, A and B, and they play only one game. Now, the total number of games played is only 1. Yet the total games played by each team is still 1. It is not a half.
