Supposing, just supposing, San Jose wins out in the West. Then they get moved, to, for the sake of discussion, Rochester. And let's say Kansas City or Columbus don't finish well, near the bottom of the East. Then Kansas City moves to Houston.
So the potential realignment could be...
East: DC, Harrison, New England, San Jose/Rochester, Columbus
West: Gals, Goats, Rocks, (everyone beats the) Wiz, RSL.
Could we then say that San Jose got promoted to the East, and the Wiz (or Columbus) got relegated?
