Inquirer staff report:

 The currently struggling Phillies are still living large off last year’s World Series victory.

They’re headed to Washington today for a White House meeting with President Obama, who was still a candidate when the Phils won the title in October.

The trip had been planned for last month but was postponed because of the death of Phillies announcer Harry Kalas.
