Doubleheaded monster

Where there are two teams in the same metro area, major league baseball tries to schedule them away from each other: the Giants go on the road one week while the A's are home, and vice versa. Once or twice a season, of course, a conflict can't be avoided and the two teams will play home games on the same date, and a few fans get really excited about seeing two games in one day. But tell me: how stupid do they have to be to schedule both teams at home on three consecutive days, including a midweek day game!? Why didn't somebody, somewhere—in one of the teams' offices if not the league HQ—stop to mention that one of the 12:35 starts on April 27 might be better as a night game?
