I Don't Understand Baseball Anymore

Case in point:

My favorite active player is pitching in Korea for the Lotte Giants. Some of you may remember him from his time with the A's and several other teams: Dan Straily. On Tuesday, Dan was lifted after five innings, leading 2-0, with 8 strikeouts and only five hits. The bullpen IMMEDIATELY blew up, giving up three runs in the 6th, and the Giants lost 5-2. This is becoming increasingly common worldwide, and I just don't get it. Teams are losing games left and right because bullpens are overworked. It's long past time to go back to "you finish what you start."
