toronto moneyballers (on defense?)

if almost every line drive we hit looks like it's hit right to a fielder, at least part of it is due to good defense on the part of toronto, and not just bad luck, right?  i'm left wondering if we really are getting unlucky, or if toronto's outfield is that great.  it's hard to see on tv (or even at the stadium, when you're looking at the batter) how much of a jump an outfielder gets on the ball, for example.  given the debate over defensive stats, i'm not sure if there's a good way to answer this even if we had all the information available to us.  any thoughts?  are we getting hosed? did JP pull a moneyball on defense? or is it too early in the season for me to start thinking about these things...
