John Henry, Sox won't comment on David Ortiz -- not yet, at least

Red Sox owner John Henry said today that the Red Sox will not make an announcement regarding David Ortiz and his positive steroid test until after all the facts come out:

"I'm going to let David speak first," Henry told reporters after taking part in a ReadBoston story event at Boston Common. "As soon as he speaks, then we'll have something to say."

Henry was also critical of the Globe's coverage of Ortiz.

"I think some of the Globe's remarks are a little, um, early," Henry said. "Let's see what David has to say."

This is a good move by Henry, because it can only cause problems if he speaks too soon. I think the Red Sox are approaching this situation in one of the best ways possible. The organization is top-notch and I'm glad to see the front office is being conservative.
