FAST FACTS: Players could not vote for a teammate.... Over the past three-plus seasons, through Sunday, Polanco, who went all of last season without making an error, has batted .319, seventh highest in baseball.... Reds starter Aaron Harang (sixth, 4%) was the only pitcher to receive more than 1% of the vote.... Young averaged 97 RBIs from 2004 through '07, most among current AL shortstops.
