Glass Half Fulmer was co-founded by a pair of Detroit Tigers fans with plenty of blogging experience, a passion for the team and the sport, and a fluency in sarcasm.
Grey Papke is a lifelong resident of Metro Detroit. His experience with the Tigers started when his mother insisted on having a handheld radio brought to her hospital room in the days after he was born so she could listen to the ballgames. He attended games at Tiger Stadium from a young age, loved saying the name “Mickey Tettleton,” and was once fortunate enough to meet Cecil Fielder before a game, where he asked the slugger how many pancakes he ate every morning. (The answer: “A lot.”) He bore witness to the numerous terrible teams of the 1990s and early 2000s, though he was in attendance when Damion Easley once hit for the cycle.
Grey began blogging about the Tigers in 2010, most prominently writing for Walkoff Woodward from 2012 to 2016. In 2010, he also became a partial season ticket holder, and he remains a regular at Friday night home games. He attended his first playoff games in 2011, was present to see them lose the World Series in 2012, and is still bitter over the pair of no-hitters he has seen fall in the 9th (Justin Verlander vs. Pittsburgh and Anibal Sanchez vs. Minnesota).
The other half of this operation, Alex Simon, can usually be found on the GHF twitter account or in the jaws of madness. She also writes stuff for Hardball Times. Please direct all hatemail to catswithbats at gmail dot com, thank you.

David Tokarz has been writing about the Tigers since 2010, when he covered prospects for Bless You Boys. He spends most of his time on Twitter, ranting about how the Tigers will be good before you think they will.
