Who else should the Oakland A’s sign to a long-term contract?

With the closer-by-committee approach paying dividends, it stands to reason Oakland A’s reliever Jim Johnson won’t return to the closer’s role anytime soon even as he shows signs of improvement. Since Johnson was taken out of the ninth-inning role Thursday, the A’s are 3 for 3 in save opportunities, with right-hander Luke Gregerson nailing down two victories and lefty Sean...
