Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.

The Twins are named for Twin Cities
And titled after their state
It wouldn't do to give just one
Of the cities unfair weight.
We cheered you an "M&M boy"
Just half of another pair
The spotlights blind shining to bright
And that would not be fair.
And even that was plagiarized
From a tandem way out east
But that's okay, the greatest
Someday are now the least-
Say what? Oh, you've gone out there too.
Well that's nice, have some fun.
Remember, when we all do that
Nobody cares who won.
And look! A record has been set
It doesn't really matter
But it's still fun for us to cheer
Such a heroic batter.
Well, maybe someone should remind
Him of reality-
Such miraculous victories
Are just for dreams, you see?
All right, do that, forget about
Those towering amounts
We'll see you here tomorrow night-
You know that that one counts?
And so, we count the innings which
Drag on beyond the night
Into the day, but it's still dark.
Through the stadium's light
We barely see the furtive runner
Sprinting to the plate
But we'll still remember this game
If only for the wait.
And the night before that? Of course.
Another chapter was
Added to myth. Your burden is
The hardest, though, because
In stories such like these, the tales
Themselves are central. In
Chronicles that speak for themselves,
Who cares about the win?
