sab-R-metrics: Some Extra Visualization Customization

Last post, I described a number of ways to show your data on a scatter plot. Ricky Zanker at THT has a similar post today for those looking to get some extra exposure and another take on R programming. Today, I plan to extend on this with a little more customization. First, if you've missed...

sab-R-metrics: Intermediate Scatter Plots

First off, I'll say it's been a whirlwind of a past few days. Thanks to David Smith at the Revolutions Blog for his kind words about the sab-R-metrics series and link back this way. Add in Ed Kupfer's posts at the APBRmetrics board, Harry Pavlidis at THT, Dave Allen at Fangraphs...

sab-R-metrics: Intermediate Boxplots and Histograms

Last week, I began talking about using the base graphics in R. Those graphics were pretty bland, and my hope for the next two posts is to introduce some interesting additions to the basic graphics that come from R: color, legends, lines, shapes, multiple graphs side-by-side, text, point types, and custom axes. If you have missed...

sab-R-metrics: Beginning with Boxplots, Scatterplots, and Histograms

Today I decided to begin more with visualizations and less with basic statistical analysis for sabermetrics using R. I'm not really here to teach the ins and outs of regressions and statistical tests, so once I get there, I'm hoping that those who have read this already have a decent understanding of those subjects before implementing them. ...

sab-R-metrics: Subsetting, Conditional Statements, ‘tapply()’, and VERY simple ‘for loops’

January 11, 2011

In my last sab-R-metrics post, I went over some basics of calling data and creating vectors or new data from those. Here, I want to extend that to full subsets of data and go on to use some of the basic functions in R so that we can begin plotting in the next tutorial.Before I begin, I...
