Some of our writers have been itching to expand their brain dumps beyond baseball into popular entertainment. Hence, we present, Toaster.TV.

I'm paying $32/year for that domain name, might as well use it, eh? Put it out there and see what happens.

Your Baseball Toaster account should work on Toaster.TV, too, but you'll have to log in separately. I could do a fancy-pants redirect-and-set-multiple-cookies trick to avoid the multiple logins, but I have other priorities right now.

It's possible there are some bugs. I didn't test it all that vigorously. If you see any, let me know in the comments below, or email support @

Site Maintenance Thursday AM

Our ISP is upgrading the operating system on our server Thursday morning.

Hopefully, the site will be down for only a few minutes (the ISP says "less than ten"), as the new OS is installed and the machine is rebooted. Our machine is scheduled to be rebooted sometime between 4:15 and 5:30 AM Pacific Time.

I plan to be sleeping during those hours, so if, for some reason, the system fails to come up automatically after the reboot, the downtime might last a little longer, until I decide to drag my weary tail out of bed.

The old body doesn't take to waking up at strange hours anymore. I need my beauty sleep. You'll live.

Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks for your patience.
