No but there are converter boxes. Try checking Newegg if anyone would have one in stock it would be them.

There is much more than wire connections to match up. eSATA and Firewire 800 are fundamentally very different interface systems with their own signal specifications. As jesomke says, it is possible to do a translation from one to the other and back in a converter box with its own microprocessor. But it might be better to find a way to provide in your computer (via a PCI card, for example, a proper controller for the external device you want to connect.
