The Five: What if everyone had a trade deadline?

This week marks Major League Baseball's trading deadline. What that means is that teams in playoff contention have little time left to freely trade assets for the pennant race.

As a baseball fan, I love this time of year -- the wheeling and dealing that takes place, speculating over what's being said behind closed doors, the rumor mill. And I've always wanted to know what it would be like to get traded.

For weeks, to have listened to the rumors, wondering if anything was going to happen, and then, bang, I've been traded to a radio station in Minneapolis for a couple interns and a microphone to be named later.

This week's "The Five" explores the idea of what if all businesses featured the frenzy of a trade deadline? What kind of trades could be made?
