Would the Angels consider Chien-Ming Wang?

According to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe, by way of MLBTradeRumors, Chien-Ming Wang is telling friends he's prepare to move on from the Yankees.  Abraham goes on to say that Wang should be ready to join a MLB rotation in May.

Wouldn't it make sense for the Angels to take a shot at Chien-Ming?

He had some mechanic issues coming off an injury, similarly to Kazmir.  He speaks enough English to conduct interviews, which probably means he understands enough to talk things out with Butcher.  Coming off an injury and an inflated ERA, Wang's market has got to be low.   Plus, "Wang has been idolized in Taiwan where all of his games are televised nationwide, many on public big screens to large audiences."

Part of what sold me on Godzilla was the opening of new revenue streams.  Couldn't Chien-Ming Wang also open similar revenue streams in Taiwan? 

The Ninja could surely offer a 1 year, low base-heavy incentive contract to Wang.  This signing would keep Palmer in the bullpen, O'Sullivan a little more time to develop in AAA, and a potential ace to fill out our line up.  And if Wang doesn't return to his previous self, he surely could fill out the 5th spot of the rotation.  And if he's terrible, you could make the decision between Sully and Palmer.
