FAST FACTS: Bonds, out while recovering from surgeries on his right knee, says he may play through 2007 to try to pass Hank Aaron's record of 755 career homers.... Six of the 30 players who got at least one vote were pitchers.... The top four finishers have been selected to a combined 50 All-Star Games.... This will be the first year none of the four players are in the All-Star Game since 1988.
