This is not formatted correctly for Wikipedia, and duplicates some of what is already in the article. If these players are notable enough to be mentioned here, it is probably best to just list them in the table that's already here, with Wikilink brackets around each name. If it's blue, the player has an article. If not, the player may not be notable enough for mention. For consistency, it is probably best to list the names only, and let people click through to the players' articles for details, unless the player is specifically notable for something done as a Toro, in which case the Timeline section is a better place to note it. I hope that helps! -- Karen | Talk | contribs 00:19, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

Merge with Tucson Sidewinders?[edit]

I propose that we merge this article into Tucson Sidewinders, in a format similar to Iowa Cubs. The two articles have a significant amount of overlap, since they describe the same team before and after a re-naming. We should streamline them into one article to avoid covering the same ground twice, taking care to retain enough of the visual content from the Toros article (pics, logos) to ensure that we document the former identity.

I disagree that the Toros and Sidewinders articles be merged. They should be kept seperate. They are two different franchises. According to what I read, Jay Zucker not only owns the current Sidewinders team in the PCL, but also owns the naming rights to the "Toros". As the history indicates, both teams are different. The word is that the current Reno Silver Sox of the Golden Baseball League will relocate to Tucson and be renamed the Toros. I think the Mesa Miners article should be merged with the Silver Sox article, but not the Toros and Sidewinders. Ccwstandard (talk) 18:01, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

Separate the two Toros teams?[edit]

Would it be better to separate out the old Tucson Toros (the AAA PCL team) from the independent league team? The two organizations are different entities with different histories. The only similarities are the location and the name. I wouldn't know how to do it but I personally think it would be the way to go. Dcs315 (talk) 00:28, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

I agree - I could do the split - it wouldn't be hard. However, the only other team I know that fits this bill (the St Paul Saints) has only one page as well. So I'm not sure if this is some kind of precedence or just laziness. I posted a similar "Split?" thread on the Saints' Talk page to see if there is any comment. If not, I'll probably just split both pages when I have some spare time. Ckruschke (talk) 07:44, 17 May 2013 (UTC)Ckruschke
