The more you can fill with small pieces of wood the better, I'd caulk those pieces in place. Filler would also be an option but it can be hard to make look right and is often prone to cracking.

I would probably replace pieces and retrim as needed. Part of the problem is the baseboard is too thin. Add on wood as needed and caulk edges as needed.
