Fall Out Boy have come up with a fun marketing gimmick for their latest album So Much (For) Stardust. Yesterday they made available a very limited number — we’re talking, like, 50 copies — that features real tears pressed into a vinyl LP. The trademarked process is called “Crynyl” and its manufacturer claims its done “for maximum emotional fidelity.” It includes one double-sided, tear-filled LP packaged in a gatefold box with a built-in tissue dispenser. Bassist Pete Wentz appears in a video that can be found on the band’s Instagram embedded in a photo of the blue-and-white Crynyl logo. In it, his tears are removed from his face with a pipette while a distorted version of their recent single “Love From The Other Side” plays in the background. (NME)

A Post-Dispatch analysis of regular-season box scores since 1901 shows games in 2023 are lasting an average of 158.8 minutes. That’s around 35 minutes shorter than they were in 2021, when baseball reached an all-time high of 193.8 minutes per game. At the peak in 2021, baseball had reached a point at which games were running nearly twice as long as they were a century earlier — an average game in 1903 took just one hour and 40 minutes. Looking at individual teams this season, those playing the longest and shortest games so far are MLB’s worst two teams. The Kansas City Royals (7-22) are averaging 2½ hours; while games involving the Oakland Athletics (6-23), are lasting almost 170 minutes. Cardinals are just a hair above the league average, at 159.1 minutes. Cardinals home games at Busch Stadium are more action-packed than the league average, taking 15.9 minutes per run scored. www.stltoday.com Cards take on the Angels at home at Busch at 645 tonight.
