Here is an explanation of this weekly feature. This entry lists the best and worst for the last 30 days of the 2015 regular season, through games of Sunday, October 4.

Comment of the week: How 2015 Braves is this: Shelby Miller was this year’s poster child for the #KillTheWin movement, as he went 6-17 over 33 starts despite a 3.02 ERA (NL average: 3.91; his ERA- was 78). He received 2.1 runs of support per 27 outs–the lowest in the majors by half a run–when he was on the mound. He got credit for a win on May 17, his fifth of the season, and didn’t get his sixth until the yesterday, on the season’s last day. So he finally got a win, after a four and a half month drought, at the end of a month during which he had the worst ERA in the National League.
