Here is my Friday newspaper column, in which I discuss the long, hot late summer confronting SNY as the first team-owned New York baseball channel ever to be confronted with its favorite team being hopelessly out of contention come late August and September.

There are other business implications of the Mets collapse that the story does not address. For example: ticket sales.

With the novelty of the new stadium now old news and prices crashing on the secondary market, it appears likely many current season ticket holders will choose not to renew for 2010.

At least the lines at the Shake Shack will go down.
