Red Sox chairman Tom Werner declined to comment on Manny Ramirez’s late scratch from the lineup tonight against the Yankees.

“I just heard about it,” said Werner, who said he would wait to talk to Ramirez himself before passing judgment on the situation.

Team president and CEO Larry Lucchino simply said, “No comment,” when asked about Ramirez.

Werner and Lucchino, along with principal owner John Henry, huddled together under the center field bleachers and spoke for about 10 minutes before the start of tonight’s game. The trio stopped there before heading over to the grand opening of The Bleacher Bar, the new Lyons Group establishment just outside the Fenway Park gates on Lansdowne Street.
