In a very competitive league I would agree. In a competitive Yahoo Public league even in roto I'm still of the opinion that you can punt saves.
I'm thinking a winning score is more like mid to high 90's. Maybe even as much as 100 in a less competitive league. I'd be surprised if I scored under 100, even accounting for a 1 in saves.
And elite closers do help in ERA and WHIP but that doesn't amount to many of them. Chasing saves with lower tier closers can burn you. Elite MR's are just as valuable as elite closers in this scenario and come pretty cheap.
