you're doing pretty good with your gear. Have you up'd the shaftshop yet? What did you socket in the helm/armor? He looks to be lacking IAS & FHR. These 2 areas will improve his speed which will improve his leeching. I'm also guessing his resists need help. He really needs maxed resists going against the bosses.

For bosses, something the best thing you can do to help your merc it to kill them quicker yourself.

For a meteorb, do any people prefer a Holy Freeze? (I haven't used it, but in my mind it seems like...isn't this redundant with Forb?)

Andariel's poison is a mercenary dropper. So is Mephisto's poison cloud + shoot lighting everywhere combo. You can possibly put a Venom Ward on your mercenary and tell me how it goes against Andy, and Blackhorn's Face for Mephisto. I wouldn't know, I usually just leave my merc dead when running Andy/Meph. =P

Keep a Kelpie's Snare available in your stash for Baal. Use pots if you need to recover mana.

For Andy, your merc should not be touched. Fireball should drop Andy fast enough such that your merc is not even hit.
For Meph, you might want to tank yourself, or dance with teleport.
Baal doesn't kill merc as fast, so there is a good margin.
