Hurricane Ike and the Astros

The Astros had a day off in this recent winning streak (a travel day). They lost the first game after the day off (to the Rockies). Cecil Cooper said part of  the reason was that a team on a roll loses that momentum when they have a day off.   The Astros got the momentum back quick enough.

Astros have cancelled Friday's  game. Saturday may be postponed also. That means at least two days  woithout playing. It also means make-up games. One could be on Monday, with the Astros playing the next day in Florida (I think).  

I wonder how this affects the Astros. Will a hurricane break the momentum that no baseball team could break.  Will playing on Monday affect the team's play on Tuesday in Florida?  Will this mean a one game at the end of the season against Cubs for all the marbles?

Is the delay all bad? Could  it help the players to recover from the many bumps and bruises suffrered by key  players?

What's your call? Game postponements caused  by Hurricane Ike : factor or nonfactor in Astros late season charge?
