Is anyone punching All-Star ballots at Chase Field?

Voting for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City has
started, but apparently very few people attending games at
Chase Field this season have received the memo.

Major League Baseball released updated National League
voting Tuesday, and not one Diamondbacks player appears
among the leaders at any position. The league lists the
top five vote-getters at each infield position and catcher
and lists the top 15 in the outfield.

Interestingly, only the Diamondbacks, San Diego Padres and
the National League East-leading Washington Nationals are
the only senior circuit squads that don’t have any players
among the leaders.

Here are the leading vote-getters at each position:
