I imagine he's staring the end of his playing days right in the face and doesn't like how it's ending. That can lead to a lot of stress and anxiety.
Or it could be that his lack of offseason conditioning has caught up to him this year just like it did last season. Both years he completely ran out of gas after a 2 month hot streak in June/July that brought his numbers up to respectable levels. At least he is consistent, I guess.
