Callie Crossley focused on this week’s stories that flew under the radar with WPRI's Ted Nesi, Cape Cod Times editor Paul Pronovost, and Mass Live News reporter Garrett Quinn. On the docket: Rhode Island’s treasurer under fire for investing pension funds in hedge funds, the end of gubernatorial hopes for Cape Cod’s Dan Wolf, and the World Series inspires a Red Sox program war near Fenway.
