Why do these verbs need the irregular stem change?

The pronouncitation without the change does not seem awkward to me.  

This relates to:
Conjugate irregular -ir verbs stem changing (e > i) in El Pretérito Indefinido (simple past) -

¡Hola R! I totally understand what you mean but unfortunately grammar rules are not always logical and we need to accept it as it is...like in all languages.

Thanks for your comment.

Silvia.
