This World Series has been bananas. Dingers have been hit, leads have come and gone, heroes have been made, unlikely and likely. It has been fun. A lot of fun. Also exhausting. But do not take my word for it - take the word of the Twitters. Here are some of my favorite tweets about Game 5 of the 2017 World Series:
