I wanted a single script solution without any additional dependencies. I am surprised I couldn't get objects representing ArcGIS server services. It would be nice if I could get more than just the names of the services from the
ListMapServices function that @PolyGeo supplied. I ended up just parsing the ArcGIS server configuration file. Here is the script I ended up with. It doesn't start/stop individual services like I wanted to do, instead it just stops the whole SOM which stops all services.
Thanks for pointing out AGSSOM utility. I wish they would expose more to the ArcPy libraries though.

oldBasePath = r"\\OLD_SERVER_NAME\SHARENAME"
# Step 2 - Replace the hostname of this path with the new hostname.
newBasePath = r"\\NEW_SERVER_NAME\SHARENAME"
directory = r"C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Server10.0\server\user\cfg"

call(["net.exe", "stop", "ArcServerObjectManager"])
