There’s a new fan/athlete interactive service called Egraphs, which promises-

“An egraph is a shared moment between you and your favorite star. It is immortalized forever with a beautiful high resolution photograph, handwritten note, autograph, and personalized voice message. It’s his voice, his handwriting, his time — every egraph is one-of-a-kind. Share it, print it, play it … whatever you want – it’s your egraph.”

Indians’ fans can get an egraph of Jim Thome’s ALCS grand slam in 1998 for $75, a $25 Vinnie Pestano version or spend $25 on an Ubaldo Jimenez. There’s just one issue I have with the Jimenez version, titled ‘Another Feller’-

“With a blazing fastball, high socks and old uniform, Jiménez resembles the Indians’ great.”

Um, no.

No, there really is nothing about Ubaldo Jimenez that reminds me of Bob Feller.

Not his fastball, which doesn’t strike fear into the hearts of opposing hitters. Not his ERA, which is the highest for an Indian starter since before Feller even pitched. Certainly not his pitching motion, which looks nothing like the statue out front of the stadium, or anything I’ve seen on video of Feller.

So he wears his pants high enough to reveal his socks. So do a lot of major leaguers.

Good luck selling those egraphs.

Pestano for the record, tweeted earlier today that he will be donating whatever proceeds he receives to a charity.
