Finding a Starter, to Mold into a Closer

It would be wise for the A's to look for a Joe Nathan type closer.  Semi-Failed Starters, Two Great Pitches, Live Fastball, 26-30 Years Old.  These types of guys are out there, and I think this is where Billy Beane should begin his Closer search.

Some names that come to mind -

Vicente Padilla
Scott Elarton
Jon Garland
Colby Lewis
Gil Meche
Wade Miller
Kip Wells
Paul Wilson
Jamey Wright

Who else fits this mold?
