Battery was shot, time for a new one.
The problem was that the original battery could no longer hold a charge, was expanding within the Unibody and the computer could not function without being plugged into an outlet.
I checked out local shops anticipating that they would not have a specific battery such as the one for the Mac pro on hand, but tried anyways. Searched the web for a day and came across iFixit. I was a bit hesitant, but I was in dire need. iFixit made it super easy. I watched the video, they provided the necessary materials list for purchase at a reasonable price in terms of convenience and ease. As mentioned earlier, I needed the battery soon, so I forked over the 2 day mail fee and received it on time as was predicted. The battery swap was quick and mess free. Now, the computer works great!
iFixit was super helpful and I would stronger consider them if you're trying to fix something yourself. Do a bit of research first on what your looking for and then weigh your options. In my case, this was the most idle situation.
