Here is an explanation of this weekly feature. This entry lists the best and worst for the past 30 days of the 2016 regular season, through games of Sunday, July 10.

Programming note: Due to a scheduling conflict, there will not be a Trailing 30 report next week.

Comments of the week: Over the past 30 days, the Cubs have the sixth worst record in the majors. Max Kepler has the second most RBI. The Reds have a player tied for third in the majors for stolen bases, and it’s not Billy Hamilton. Peter Bourjos has the eighth highest OPS. Yeah, it’s time for a few days off.
