I could compare the rosters (which are made up of one out of every nine active MLB players), position by position, speculate on potential late game left-on-left match-ups and predict a winner.  But I'm not going to, because such exhibitions are ever more unpredictable than most games in this unpredictable sport.  

The Rockies only have one participant in the game, and he's batting eighth tonight.  He should still get at least two at-bats regardless though, as the National League only has one other shortstop on the roster - Starlin Castro.  So expect 5-6 innings of play, quad permitting.
