Chris Cotillo is the Boston Red Sox beat writer for MassLive. He joined the Press Pass Podcast to discuss how he got his start in the business, going all the way back to his high school days when he was a teenage MLB insider breaking news on Twitter. Chris profiles his journey from there to working his way up the SB Nation rankings and finally ending up at MassLive as a proper beat writer covering the Red Sox. He also discussed his latest project, an online journalism workshop for anybody and everybody who is interested in getting into the sports media industry.

Chris also touches upon the no-good, very bad 2020 season for the Red Sox, how realistic an Alex Cora return might be, who they could target for their open managerial position, where expectations should be for the 2021 season, what the draft will look like, his favorite baseball memory, and more.
