Cleveland Indians pitcher Chris Perez sincerely regrets verbally blasting an Oakland A's fan before the game yesterday ... this according to a team rep who tells us the GM has already spoken with Chris about the incident.

In case you missed it ... Perez -- a 2-time MLB All-Star -- snapped on an A's fan who had been taunting him about being a crappy relief pitcher. Among Perez's comebacks -- "you piece of sh*t ... get your d*ck out of your mouth."

Now, a rep for the Indians tells us the General Manager, Chris Antonetti, has already spoken with Chris and discussed the situation in full.

After the conversation, the team believes "Chris certainly regrets what he did."

We also spoke with a rep for Major League Baseball who told us the office is aware of the video and insists the incident is "currently under review."

MLB adds, "When unfortunate situations arise, we always investigate the circumstances to the best of our abilities and evaluate whether disciplinary measures are appropriate."

The Indians are scheduled to play Seattle tonight -- and the team rep tells us Perez is currently expected to play if needed.

Oh man, I farted in Walmart yesterday does that mean I have to make a public apology. Do you suppose TMZ will cover it if I say it was all Tom Cruise's fault?

So that was the best the guy could do? Hope he is a better relief pitcher than he is as comebacks.

The only thing worse than being politically incorrect is being politically incorrect and then apologizing for it. GROW A PAIR! IF YOU THINK THE GUY IS A DICK (and he is) THEN STAND BY YOUR STATEMENT! SCREW MLB!

This from a guy who puked on the mound a few weeks ago - apparently he thinks he sucks too.

It's Obama's fault.
After all, he's a secret Muslim who hates America.

I think it was Bruce Sutter(but could have been another card pitcher) who was credited with the greatest comeback to a heckling fan. Cubs fan was being merciless to the Cardinal bullpen. finally shouted "Whats your record Fatboy?" Sutter-"30 minutes, ON YOUR MOTHER" .

Maybe he could take HIS dick out of his mouth long enough to apologize on his own?
