Question....Why all the love for the long ball when you can get RBI's other ways?

My case is Joe Mauer's case. He drove in eighty five runs this year with only 10 home runs.
Was it better for Joe to hit 25 home runs and drive in eighty five?
What makes hitting the long ball better? You accomplish the same objective by singles or doubles.
Joe Mauer hit for power....what a line, only one year in his career....gotta stop this. Ha. So why is he expected to put up power numbers now?
