I always thought they were prospects because they actually had baseball cards printed by Topps. Maybe that means nothing, but to have a card when you are in the minors might give the impression that you are supposed to make it.
Bierne did make it, just not big. He spent parts of three seasons in the bigs, with the ChiSox, Toronto and the Dodgers. Inglin is/was a career minor leaguer (very good AA hitter), and Purvis has been hurt a lot. I doubt he would have made it anyway, but we'll never know.
