07:19 AM ET 08.05 | The leadoff spot has been anything but first-rate since the break in San Francisco. Gregor Blanco and Andres Torres have been in dry dock since the break. And Bruce Bochy is ready to jump ship. The manager will choose a new leadoff hitter Monday, when the Giants begin a seven-game homestand with the Brewers and Orioles. It'll probably be Marco Scutaro. It could be Hunter Pence. ... "I like leading off," said Pence, who has hit one home run since June 30 and was moved from fifth to sixth in the series at Tropicana Field, where the Giants dropped two of three. I feel pretty fast on the basepaths right now. It's fun to have a chance to spark something. It'd be something to be in front of Scutaro and [Pablo Sandoval and Buster Posey]. I'm an aggressive swinger. You can set a little bit of a tone, you know?"

QUOTE(#1):

Scutaro gets on base.Not that it matters any more this season...

He also gets mistaken for Hunter Pence as they look so much alike.

Bochy wants a new leadoff, and a new #2,#3, and #5-8. That leaves Posey at clean-up and the pitcher's spot.
