FAST FACTS: Players were not allowed to vote for a teammate.... No pitcher finished among the top 10 in the "friendliest" vote.... Among NL West players, Kent (31.3%) outpolled Bonds (13.6%) as "least friendly." ... Two years ago Hal McCoy, a Cincinnati Reds beat writer for 35 years, said, "There's no debate, and there never will be a debate. Sean Casey is the nicest guy in professional baseball. Ever."
