]]>1) How to build a transition matrix to simulate a complete game between two teams, taking into account all offensive(batters/runners) and defensive (pitchers/fielding) strength.

2) The method used in section 9.2.6 to estimate the transition matrix. In the book is written: “The description of this methodology is beyond the level of this book…” but no further reading or reference is given

I feel lot of interest on these topics and I appreciate to have some references to continue my research.

Thanks in advance. Sergio.

R Version:

platform x86_64-w64-mingw32

arch x86_64

os mingw32

system x86_64, mingw32

version.string R version 3.4.3 (2017-11-30)

What I did was to download Statcast data one week at a time. A little tedious, but I was successful in downloading all of the data for the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
