Jack Moore is likely the funniest person you have never heard of. Jack is the Senior Sports Editor at BuzzFeed – a fast-paced, humor-driven, best-in-class conglomeration of content matched by few sites right now. He is also one of the two persons behind Modern Seinfeld, the Twitter account that puts the Gang of Four in modern scenarios in 160 characters or less. Modern Seinfeld has garnered 570K followers in just under five months, making it one of the fastest growing accounts in Twitter history.
Jack and I were classmates at NYU together, where, in the Spring of 2008, we bonded in our fandoms of good-but-not-great MLB teams: I being a Phillies fan and Jack a fan of the Tribe, both who had made the playoffs in 2007 after absences. He took time out of his schedule to answer some questions for our Celebrity Series Preview.

Photo: Philliedelphia/Lindsey Crew Yesterday was completely disgusting. Losing 14-2 just about explains itself. The Phillies' pitching got creamed and their offense was unable to come remotely close. The Indians are hot right now. They've scored 33 runs in their last three games and desimated Roy Halladay last night. Tonight the...

Tonight the Indians face an old friend.Five years ago, lefty Cliff Lee was enjoying a career season with the Indians and broke through as one of the games best pitchers when he won the 2008 American League Cy Young award.
