To make matters worse, Sox manager Terry Francona isn't without his ailments as well. He was coughing up blood and spitting it into a towel while he answered questions after Sunday's loss. "I might have OD'd on my blood thinners," explained the beleaguered manager. ``I think I took too much." Francona bit his cheek in Sunday's loss and had been spitting up blood ever since. "I woked up this morning with a mouthful," Francona said Monday. "It was awful."
