Royals doubleheader

I know this is probably going to come off insensitive, due to the recent events that have taken place in our great city.  I know it seems gauche to talk about baseball management oversight when they have already been forced to make such immediate decision as to whether to play a game of baseball during a city emergency.  The Twins' decision (and action) regarding the issue of whether to play a game on the heels of such a devastating event was both bold and unselfish.  To put the team on the field last night showed a true spirit of community, for the sole purpose of keeping order.  All thoughts of a win, sweep, or division standings were null and void when the proposition was made:  'Do we make it easier or harder on the men and women working so diligently to save and preserve lives?'  The Twins deserve major props for acting in the best interest of the city at the expense of the ballclub.

All that being said...

Why on earth are they making up the postponed game as part of a FRIDAY doubleheader when the game already being played Saturday is at 11:00 am.  I know this is insensitive, but I was looking forward to a full two-game day at the Metrodome on Sept. 1.  If nothing else, to take my mind off this horrible string of days that we all have been living through.
