Henry: ‘We want to hear the facts before we say anything’

Red Sox owner John Henry spoke briefly with reporters this morning, saying the team is going to withhold commenting on David Ortiz’s inclusion on a list of players to have tested positive for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003 until after the Sox slugger talks about it.

“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.”
