MLB.com wrote:The Office of the Commissioner of Baseball announced today that pitcher Guillermo Mota, who finished the 2006 season as a member of the New York Mets, has been suspended for 50 games for violating Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. His suspension will be effective for the start of the 2007 season.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Unless you dig conspiracy theories, the time frame suggests the test was taken after the playoff series. I am basing my time frame on the time it takes NSAC to announce suspensions after a boxing/MMA match.

Might not be steriods since there are many sustances that are banned that carry the same penalty, Andro being one of them.
