There wasn't a single shortstop in the top 25 of WAR leaders this year. Last year, Jose Reyes and Troy Tulowitzki were in the top 25, but they were outside the top 15.
Centerfielders rank pretty high, but one could argue it's because right now there are several really, really good ones (Kemp, Trout, McCutchen, etc.)
