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

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

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.
