Cake or Death: How do we feel about Andrew Dykstra's future with D.C. United?

With the 2013 season finally, mercifully behind us, it's time to run through the D.C. United roster and determine who should stay and eat cake and who should leave the team and find inevitable death. Today we look at third goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra.


As we make our trip down D.C. United's roster, there are some players - like Nick DeLeon earlier this week - who I'm sure will be given cake by a large majority of United fans. There are also those who I am confident will be given death almost unanimously because of their subpar play in the Black-and-Red. Then there's Andrew Dykstra. The 27-year-old has been with D.C. for the last two years but has yet to make an official appearance for United, going out on loan each season. This year, he played for the Richmond Kickers in USL-Pro, making 14 appearances en route to a regular season championship and the USL-Pro goalkeeper of the year award.

And yet he remains firmly behind Bill Hamid and Joe Willis in the D.C. pecking order. I honestly have no idea how y'all are going to vote on Dykstra, mostly because he's not that big a part of the conversation around here most of the time.

Today, we decide his future (which is not to say that our poll has any real-world bearing whatsoever). If you think there's a place for Dykstra on United's roster in 2014 (whether he'll be loaned out again or not), vote to give him Cake. If you'd rather see him pack his bags on a more permanent basis, then vote to give him Death.

And then take a moment to let us know in the comments which way you voted.
