John Lackey, Starscream, Smee Among NESN Nation’s Top Lackeys Of All Time

Lackey (Noun): "A servile follower." That's the dictionary definition of the word.

But when Red Sox fans talk about lackeys, they're usually referring to pitcher John Lackey, who is less of a follower and more of an important part of the Red Sox' rotation.

He continued his strong second half on Saturday afternoon, allowing three runs in six innings of work against the New York Yankees, and NESN Nation wanted to commemorate the occasion.

To do so, NESN Nation's Fitzy made a list of his favorite lackeys.

Where would you rank John Lackey next to the likes of some of pop culture's most infamous henchmen? Let us know in the comments section and hop on over to the NESN Nation live chat to join the conversation.
