Cake or Death? What do we think of rookie left sider Taylor Kemp?

New, 19 comments

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 no-longer-a-rookie Taylor Kemp.

In today's ninth episode of D.C. United Cake or Death?, we look at 2013 rookie Taylor Kemp. He came out of Maryland as a fullback last winter with United's late first-round Superdraft pick. But with his defensive instincts not quite honed enough for the professional level, he spent a lot of his first season down in Richmond with United's USL-Pro affiliates. When he did make first team appearances, it was at left midfield as often as it was at fullback.

We know he's on a low salary - college seniors entering MLS usually are - and he's got some decent attacking skills, plus that left foot. So, today, we ask whether Kemp should see a second season in Black-and-Red. By this point in our series, you should know how this works - but just in case: If you think Kemp warrants another season with United, give him Cake; if not, death. Couldn't be more straightforward.

And once you've voted in our poll, be sure to sound off in the comments with your reasoning.
