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.
