Pirates’ Closer Joel Hanrahan Gets Pedicure, Toenails Painted [Photos]


Before today we’d never heard of Joel Hanrahan. Never. Then we started looking at stats for closers in the N.L. and realized Mr. Hanrahan is simply a fantasy stud from the Pittsburgh Pirates and is hands down the team’s representative at the all-star game. He’s 20-for-20 in saves and has a 1.31 ERA. Time to feature this guy and show you how he spent last evening with his girlfriend and Mr. & Mrs. Chris Resop (fellow Pirates’ pitcher) getting pedicures.

Hanrahan notched his 20th save yesterday against the Orioles and decided to go on a double date to get the toes worked on a little bit. That night out with the Resops ended with Joel’s toes painted and live tweeted to his 10,000+ followers.

Double date with @kdonovan305 and the resops tonight, 1st stop mani/pedi- what color for my toes???

@eric_theorange it’s purple and pink, the fans said purple for prostate cancer and pink for breast cancer, i got the ribbon in purple too ha

The guy is on fire. Having fun. And he’s smashed his previous career high of 9 saves. The Pirates are sticking to the .500 mark and feeling good about themselves.
