Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado became the first MLB player in seven years to complete a cycle with a walk-off home run. His three-run blast in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Rockies to a 7-5 win over the Giants. Arenado went 4 for 5 and got the cycle with a triple in the first, single in the fourth, double in the sixth and then the home run in the ninth. The last person to complete a cycle with a walk-off homer was Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez, who did it against the Cubs in 2010.

All of those teams pulling triggers so late on positions that important — the wisdom of it will be known soon enough. Because, clearly, the season’s practically here.
To figure that out, I set up four tiers of teams on a superteam scale, looking at every team with at least two established current stars.
Who qualifies as a star? A player has to have been on an All-Star team or an All-NBA team in any of the previous three seasons. A superteam gets five points for first-team All-NBA, three points for second-team All-NBA and one point for All-NBA third team or an All-Star team. Players over 35 don’t count, since we’re talking about stars near their peak.
