Chan Ho Park A Closer Candidate?

Interesting note from the Boston Globe:

"A source told the Globe's Nick Cafardo that during the Matsuzaka negotiations, Boras was trying to sell the Red Sox on signing Chan Ho Park to be the team's closer."

It's a smart idea, grabbing a failed starter and converting him to relief.  Park currently posts mediocre strikeout rates, but it stands to reason that he could bump that up if used in one-inning bursts.  Other starters who could excel in relief: Renyel Pinto, Oliver Perez, Angel Guzman, Jorge de la Rosa, Ian Snell, or Mark Prior.
