Sotomayor--A Yankees Fan?

I might have to reconsider my support of Sotomayor:

Sotomayor, an ardent New York Yankees fan, issued an injunction against baseball team owners in 1995 for alleged violations of the National Labor Relations Act. The owners had sought to end the existing free agency and salary arbitration systems and imposed a lock-out against players as negotiations crumbled. The ruling ended the strike, which had begun on Aug. 12, 1994 and ended up cancelling the World Series that season.

Her opposition to baseball owners in the strike is good I guess, but can America afford to have a Yankees fan on the high court?

I say no.
