    Feb 18, 2006, 10:27 AM EDT

    Talk about an owner really cramping a GM’s style.  Ed Snider felt the need to flex his muscles two Fridays ago when he affirmed that "we will trade him."  Only hours prior to that statement, Billy King, despite all his shortcomings, actually handled the situation properly, keeping a hush on things.  Leave it up to…
