No. Generally to win in a semi-competitive 12 team league you need to place 3rd or better in every category. If you reach 100, 105 total points you are likely to win. Punting saves automatically gives you a 1 in that category and you would have to dominate everything else. With your roster I don't see that happening. Not that you have a bad team, but you are just unlikely to dominate the hitting categories by that wide a margin.
I agree with some other posters, you need to trade some starting pitching for saves.
Escobar is a good sleeper pitcher on your team and I would keep him. You might want to try and trade Mulder for a front line closer as his name recognition is greater.
I think Billy Wagner is undervalued this year. I would try and target him, but Mulder would be too high a price to get him.
