The Stark Report for 7.14.15:

We moved up The Stark Report to Tuesday of this week because of the All-Star festivities. Stark called in LIVE from the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati to talk a bit about the game tonight and also about the home run derby he was in attendance for last night. It was a special night for Todd Frazier who won the derby in his home stadium and Stark believes that the new format was a hit and will stay in the competition. Stark also gives his thoughts on the All-Star game and the annual debate of it determining home field advantage in the World Series.

Johnathan Papelbon was also in the news yesterday for his comments during the media availability saying that the Phillies should "you know what or get off the pot" regarding a trade involving the closer. Stark doesnt want to find out what he'll say on August 1st  if does not get traded.
