Carlos Beltran is free to be an RBI whore

I heard that with David Wright and Ike Davis out of the lineup and Jason Bay still in freefall, Terry Collins actually went to Beltran recently and told the switch-hitter to get greedy in RBI situations. The Mets manager liberated Beltran to essentially become an RBI whore.”

I don’t understand. What exactly is the opposite of this approach? Intentionally trying to not drive in runs.

This either makes no sense, I’m losing my mind, or Sherman misunderstood what was being communicated from Collins.

Also, after this comment, Beltran should be given permission to replace the name on the back of his uniform with ‘RBI Whore.’

By the way, since David Wright was put on the disabled list, Beltran is batting .250 with a .368 OBP, three extra base hits and three RBI.
