Anyone remember a R tutorial about small sample sizes in baseball analytics?


I remember reading an article on working with limited data in baseball but I can’t seem to find it anymore. If anyone can remember or help find it, it’d be much appreciated.

The gist of it was something like “we have some limited data on the performance of these two players in a minor league, which one do we predict will be a better player in the future.”

It’s maybe around two years old. I would have guessed it was on but now that I checked for everything related to baseball on r-bloggers, I’ll say it’s almost certainly not on r-bloggers.



David Robinson wrote a few posts around baseball stats:


try BillPetti, he’d be myfirst call on baseball and R


and there is a site with articles since 2013 here.
