Sports Illustrated.com is already noting how MLB franchises who were on top of their game last season are all getting off to a poor start.
"It’s panic time! Or at least it's time to wonder about these four contenders, all of whom are off to poor starts in 2019. But just how much hair-tearing and lamentation should fans be doing after a rough first week for their squads?

Here are our Weekend Sunday'sentertainment picks.
An Evening with C.S. Lewis – the year is 1963 and C.S. Lewis, the famous British author, is hosting a group of American writers at his home near Oxford. They are about to experience a captivating evening with a man whose engaging conversation and spontaneous humor made him one of the great raconteurs of his day.
Seated in his living room and in front of a warm fire he recalls the people and events that inspired his thought and shaped his life; of his friendship with J.R.R. Tolkien; why he nearly abandoned the Narnia Chronicles; how he came to embrace Christianity and of the American woman who turned his life upside down.
