Pittsburgh Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan allowed just 14 earned runs in 68.2 innings pitched in 2011.

Fansided NL Reliever of Year: Where Did Joel Hanrahan Finish?

Joel Hanrahan had an outstanding season for the Pittburgh Pirates in 2011. Hanrahan racked up 40 saves for the Bucs, with a ridiculous ERA+ of 209 while pitching 68.2 innings.

Hanrahan had fewer strikeouts than Craig Kimbrel or John Axford, but the Hanranator limited hits, while he reduced walks and homeruns during his first All-Star season.

We voted him ahead of Axford, but when you read the article you will realize we were in the minority.
