TV ratings are up for this World Series as errors and weird plays have dominated. Hey, at least we got some entertainment out of this one!

As if this World Series isn't weird enough, check out this sequence of tweets:

Never mind the SNL comment, if this series keeps going the way the first four games have, according to that conversation, we are in for one heck of a Game 6. Let's just hope the winning team isn't from the same league as in 1975.

Also, beyond having one game ending on an obstruction call and another on a pickoff play, remember that Game 1 nearly ended on a 9-3 putout on what otherwise was a clean single to right field.

What's next, a balk-off? Catcher's interference?

Game 5 time: 7 p.m. CT. TV: Fox. Announcers: Joe Buck, Tim McCarver, Ken Rosenthal, Erin Andrews. Series tied 2-2.
