Jake Donnelly (AKA "Bagoon) dishes on the subjects he will touch on in the July 4th, 2017 episode of Bagoon's Barrage: the Boston Red Sox are playing great, Dustin Pedroia is on fire, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum were terrific in the first summer league game (Start-1:30) before diving into the Topic of the Day (1:30-3:00) , "the Drew Pomeranz/Anderson Espinoza Trade." Jake discusses the background of the trade and goes back in time to last year and why he pulled the trigger on the trade (3:00-6:02). He discusses the aftermath and the duplicitous medical staff of the San Diego Padres (6:03-9:12) and how after the 2016 trade it looked like the Red Sox clearly were the losers in that trade (9:12-9:56). Jake goes on to explain though how half a year later the Red Sox clearly look like the winners of the trade because Pomeranz has returned to his All-Star form (9:57-14:35), which is outstanding because it wasn't the only top prospect Dombrowski traded away in the offseason (14:36-16:40). Not only is Pomeranz back to his early 2016 form, but things aren't looking good for Espinoza (16:41-19:16) and if the Padres are pulling their best Frank Drebin (19:17-20:53). Jake says that people are right to rag on Dombrowski for bad moves like Travis Shaw/Pablo Sandoval (20:54-22:15), but that they should definitely give him credit when things work out (22:16-22:48). He finally hits on how well the Red Sox are playing (and wishes Canada a belated Happy Canada Day) and in particular Dustin Pedroia while giving a recap of the most recent game (22:49-28:18). He also relays how well the Boston Celtics young guns played in their first Summer League game of the season (28:19-32:42) before wrapping things up with the Gordon Hayward fiasco (32:43-End).
