Manny Delcarmen for Nick Johnson trade?

The Red Sox may need a hitter. The Washington Nationals need everything. Could the Sox potentially work something out with the Nats? Perhaps:

Peter Gammons told ESPN's Mike & Mike In The Morning on Thursday that the Nationals have discussed swapping Nick Johnson for Boston's Manny Delcarmen.
The Red Sox will probably give David Ortiz a little more time to get his swing figured out before pulling the trigger. If he can't get it turned around, Johnson would make a nice fit. He's batting .338/.435/.473 this season with four home runs and 25 RBI in 148 at-bats. Delcarmen has been lights out, with a 0.95 ERA in 19 innings, but the Red Sox have enough pitching depth in their system to cope with the loss.

I'm not sure if a Manny D./Nick Johnson swap is the best thing for us. Johnson is mashing right now for the Nats, but I don't know how he'd make the transition to being a Red Sox. Delcarmen would probably DOMINATE in a Nats uniform on the flipside.

What about you? Pull the trigger?
