Well, in the last two days I have been messing around with a new package in R called “locfit”. This package does regression and density estimation using a variable bandwidth parameter instead of the fixed one that I have been using thus far. The good news is that I have updated my scripts to take advantage of this new capability. The bad news is that it’s going to take me a little bit of time to update the maps I have posted already. So in the next couple of days I hope to redo my umpire season plots from 2012. After that, I hope to begin doing maps for individual games again. So bear with me as I transition to this new methodology.
