Just looking to see what, if anything you guys tweak for your arms come playoff time.  Do you set any RH/LH specialists at this stage? Do you bump your Call Bullpen rankings? Just looking for feedback and different ideas for what other owners do when the rubber meets the road.

Three starters.   Raise pull by 1.
Three LR.  Pull set at 4.
Three SuA.  Raise pull by 1.

If you don't have a blowout or a couple of extra inning games, you won't need more.    I've gotten by with 8 pitchers.  Case in point:
Peter Randolph 3 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2.0 1 1 1 0 1 1 .143 .250 .286 1.00 4.50
Santiago Machado 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2.1 0 0 0 0 1 1 .000 .125 .000 0.43 0.00
Tomas Ayala 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 6.1 9 4 4 3 4 6 .333 .419 .667 2.05 5.68
Luis Torcato 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 6.1 2 1 1 0 2 1 .105 .217 .158 0.63 1.42
Junior Pichardo 5 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 6.2 10 3 3 0 1 1 .333 .375 .367 1.65 4.05
Tyler Sampson 9 0 0 0 1 0 1 1 11.0 9 3 3 0 5 6 .237 .326 .237 1.27 2.45
Esmailyn Baez 4 4 0 0 0 2 0 0 12.2 26 17 17 5 5 10 .419 .463 .742 2.45 12.08
Chris Earley 4 2 0 0 3 0 0 0 19.1 17 5 5 3 5 14 .236 .286 .375 1.14 2.33
Sun Choi 4 4 0 0 0 2 0 0 20.1 21 8 8 1 3 15 .259 .286 .309 1.18 3.54

I carried 9 but could have carried 8.  Machado is 0/64 who averaged 26 innings over the last two seasons.

I don't do anything that drastic, other than shuffle my top three SP about as needed with a 4th waiting in the wings.  I also take all guys I don't want pitching for the next particular day and put them on rest.

I do whatever works for the particular staff to jam more innings onto the best pitchers, inning-for-inning.  If the SP are noticeably worse, inning for inning, than the top 3-4 relievers, I give the starters a quicker hook.  If the reverse is true I might lengthen the pitch counts for the SP.  If I have a single stud reliever I might quick-hook some of the other RP, and set the auto-rest for the stud lower than the usual 98 or so.  And in an elimination game I may rest everybody except the specific guys I want to pitch in that game.
