Sox radio only on 'RKO and 'EEI for Series

I can't see The Score in Providence being happy with that arrangement 
this time around, since they are the ESPN affiliate there and would 
have exclusivity over WEEI-FM.  Same thing goes for 870 in Portland, 
which would also have the Series to themselves.  I suppose the 
Worldwide Leader could pick and choose to which Red Sox Radio Network 
affiliates they would offer the broadcasts.
Since 890 is non-existant here in Worcester county at night, I'm hoping 
they allow WCRN to run the games.  If not, my best bet will be WEPN/New 

I was just at the WEPN website, and it looks like they have a Rangers 
game scheduled for Thursday night.   It's possible that Game 1 will be 
on 1050 and Game 2 on 1560, which has a decent signal out here.
