This Sampson thing isn't getting any prettier

The Saga of Chris Sampson just got ratcheted up. Less than 24 hours after tweeting that the Astros weren't so good at communication, he has essentially been removed from the 40-Man Roster and outrighted to Round Rock.

He has three days to accept the assignment, or refuse, and become a free agent. Maybe it has something to do with his tweet. Maybe it doesn't. But it's still an interesting development.
