What does Hendry do now?

About 50 games in, it's obvious this club has too many duplicate parts, and some that are missing.  Most disturbing, is the fact that many facets of the teams play has contributed to several losses; bullpen, inconsistant offense, poor defense and bad baserunning.  Good teams find ways to pick each other up; when the pitching is struggling, the offense scores some key runs, and when the offense is lacking, the pitching and defense steps up to squeeze out wins.  This club has shown no sign of doing that, and has not taken advantage when it looked like they had momentum to put a string together.

Here is the big question; do you wait until the trading deadline to try and improve the club and gamble they won't be 8-10 games out by that time?  Or do you get aggressive, and try to make some changes in the next 2-3 weeks and pay a higher price to impact the team before it may be too late?  You will have more selection (at a better price) at the deadline, but as is, this team is not capable of making up a 7-8 game defecit to make the playoffs.  Furthermore, I highly doubt the Brewers (and even the Cards) will keep losing at this rate.
